The Senate Judiciary Committee will on March 15 consider SB2377 by Sen. Mike Bell, R-Riceville, that would require losing parties in lawsuits brought against state officials in their individual capacity to pay legal costs. The House of Representatives passed its companion HB1679 by Rep. William Lamberth, R-Cottontown. The TBA does not support this change in policy by the legislature because it chills legitimate claims.
