Donald Trump and “Tort Reform”

President Donald Trump is not a typical Republican President and he may not toe the party line on “tort reform”. We don’t hear him speak against “junk lawsuits” the way George W. Bush did. What can we expect from the POTUS on tort issues?

Injuries from firearms: The NRA strongly supports Trump, given his promises to “protect our 2nd Amendment”. Whether that protection extends…

The Senate bill would remove the immunity given to foreign nations in cases where nations are found culpable for terrorist attacks that kill Americans on United…
