Lawsuit Reform Measure Awaits Vote in the State Senate (Mar 30, 2006)
Earlier this month, the Oklahoma House approved the “Common Sense in the Courtroom" Act and passed it on to the State Senate, where it now awaits a committee vote. The proposal aims to reduce litigation and attorney’s fees, impose limits on punitive damages and put an end to so-called “junk lawsuits.” Advocates say the changes are necessary to ensure quick and fair compensation for injured people and to make Oklahoma a more business friendly environment. But some Democratic opponents charge the legislation favors big business and would weaken citizens’ ability to protect themselves against corporate abuses. Guests include State Senator Glenn Coffee (R-OKC), State Representative Terry Harrison (D-McAlester), B.J. Kincade – Chairperson of Oklahomans for Responsible Justice and House Speaker Todd Hiett (R-Kellyville) (approx. 7 minutes).
