MO: Lawmakers Override Vetoes on 3 Limitations of Liability

In Missouri, 3 of the 10 veto overrides were on issues of tort reform.  Missouri now limits punies in some lead-contamination cases, bars uninsured motorists injured in auto accidents from recovering non-economic damages from insured drivers who were at fault, and shields volunteer health care workers from liability for all but the most egregious conduct.  The Bellingham Herald has the story.  The article discusses a trend I have noticed lately.  The reforms being proposed and adopted tend to be much more discrete and limited than in the past.
