3/14/2011 - AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today reiterated his commitment to further strengthening Texas' legal system by creating a "loser pays" system to provide stronger protections against frivolous lawsuits, establishing an early dismissal option for frivolous lawsuits, ensuring new laws cannot create causes of action unless expressly established by the Legislature, and setting up speedier trials and limited discovery for lawsuits with claims between $10,000 and $100,000. The governor was joined by Rep. Brandon Creighton and Sen. Joan Huffman, who are sponsoring House Bill 274 and Senate Bill 13 to address this issue.
