Lawyers say tort reform bill would result in fewer cases

Plaintiffs' lawyers say a sweeping federal tort reform bill is intended to drive lawyers away from helping injured clients. The bill, which would cap non-economic damages in a broad range of lawsuits at $250,000, severely limit punitive damages and pre-empt many state laws, has been approved by the House Judiciary Committee.

The president of the Minnesota Association for Justice, James Carey, said the bill would make it nearly impossible for attorneys to be able to afford taking these kinds of cases.
