More on the Arkansas Supreme Court decision declaring tort reform unconstitutional
Here is another article on the Arkansas Supreme Court decision that declared much of its tort reform statute unconstitutional. In a previous post, I commented on the Court's decision as it related to the "empty chair defense." The second aspect of the tort reform statute the court invalidated was an attempt eliminate the collateral bar rule. I am very glad that these tort reform initiatives have been defeated.
