House Passes "Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act" (Redux)

The House of Representatives passed the so-called "Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act" yesterday, and it will now go to the Senate.  According to govtrack.us, this is the fourth time that the bill, or a similar version, has passed the House.   

We briefly described the present version of the bill here.   Professor Lonny Hoffman testified against an earlier version of the bill in 2011.

The ABA urged Congress not to pass the bill, but its efforts apparently fell on deaf ears in the House.
