It’s Still a Federal Bill – So It Still Nationalizes Tort Law


H.R. 1215 – the bill to nationalize tort law – is back.  Which is bad news – and makes even less sense than the last time it was under consideration.

It came up in mid-June, but was pulled – for exactly the right reason.  Tort law is the many states’ domain – so this bill is anti-Constitutional.  And Congress pulled it – on federalism grounds.  Smart.

But now it’s back – with its backers claiming they’ve made some changes to address the federalism problem.

Except – that’s not possible.  It’s still a federal government bill – so it still would nationalize tort law.

You can’t “tweak” that away.

So H.R. 1215 – should simply go away.
