New Pennsylvania Joint and Several Liability Law On its Way to Governor's Desk

SB 1131, previously approved by the Pennsylvania Senate, has been passed by the Pennsylvania House  of Representatives by a vote of 116 to 83.  It now proceeds to Governor Corbett's desk where it is likely to be signed into law in the near future.

Below is a link to the bill. The bill takes effect upon the governor's signature and the bill applies to causes of action that "accrue on or after the effective date."
