House Passes "Lawsuit Abuse" Bill

As I mentioned, last week, the U.S. House was taking up the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act.  The ABA Journal reports that the bill passed the House on Thursday.   The bill reinstates mandatory sanctions and eliminates the 21-day safe harbor for frivolous claims under Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  

Thanks to Lisa Smith-Butler for the alert.
