Tort reform bill introduced in South Carolina Senate
The Charleston Business Journal reported yesterday that a comprehensive tort reform legislation has been introduced in the S.C. Senate. Its supporters claim the legislation will help promote a more favorable business climate and lead to more business investment and job creation. The CBJ says the bill builds on legislation that was implemented in 2005 by placing limits on punitive and noneconomic damages and class action reform.
