WI Tort Reform Proposals

Gov. Walker called the Wisconsin State Legislature into session last week to focus on jobs.  Among other issues, four tort reform proposals will be introduced:

(1)  A bill requiring courts to consider certain factors in determining reasonable attorneys' fees;

(2)  A bill providing immunity for certain drug and device manufacturers based on preemption;

(3)  A bill preempting courts in WI from adopting R3's "flagrant trespasser" doctrine; and

(4)  A bill changing the interest rates on judgments in certain actions.

The State Bar of Wisconsin has the details.
