OK: Legislature Concludes Special Session

Oklahoma legislators concluded a five-day special session on Monday.  Called by Governor Mary Fallin, the session addressed tort reform in the wake of a June ruling by the state's supreme court that a 2009 tort reform law was unconstitutional.  Legislators passed about two dozen bills addressing, among other things, med mal, class actions, and products liability.  There were disputes about the certificate of merit requirement and an exemption from liability for manufacturers of "inherently unsafe" products.  The San Francisco Chronicle has the story.
