New Congressional Civil Justice Caucus Pushes Legal Reform Issues

From the Blog of the Legal Times:

Conservative lawmakers are organizing in a more formal way to promote an array of changes to the civil justice system, including proposals related to medical malpractice reform, venue and federal pleading standards.

Six members of the U.S. House of Representatives said today they’re starting a Congressional Civil Justice Caucus. Like other alliances formed on specific issues, the caucus won’t have specific authority, but its members hope it will be a vehicle for organizing and debate.

George Mason also has formed the "Congressional Civil Justice Caucus Academy," which is "an independent, outside entity that shares the goals of the Caucus and is organized under the leadership of the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law."

Thanks to Lisa Smith-Butler for the story.
