Bill Favors Trial Lawyers

The Minnesota Senate may take up a bill on Monday that would increase attorney's fees for a variety of civil cases, primarily against insurance companies. Attempts to find an administrative compromise over the last year has failed, so far. Those opposed to the bill are considering a public information campaign over the Easter Break but those in favor of the bill may try to pass it on Monday before the break, before opposition can build. Some say that increased legal fees for litigation means higher insurance premiums for consumers. The bill is SF 2822 and is sponsored by Trryl Clark from St. Cloud.
