Joe Jones met with Governor Haley as part of the SC Civil Justice Coalition Executive Committee to discuss tort reform issues.
“Governor Haley has been a strong proponent of the tort reform issues advanced by the coalition,” said Jones. This meeting was to brief her on issues that might be brought up in the 2015 General Assembly.
Engineers have supported and benefited by the tort reform issues that have become law since 2003 including a much shorter statute of repose and a certificate of merit. Issues expected to be introduced in January include a stronger certificate of merit, seatbelt admissibility, trespass liability and consumer lawsuit lending.
