Pennsylvania Senate Expected to Vote on Joint and Several Liability Bill Today


The Senate is expected to vote today on the issue of joint and several liability in the form of Senate Bill 1131, a bill recently introduced and sponsored by Sen. Stewart Greenleaf.

Senate Bill 1131 eliminates joint liability except in cases in which a defendant is found liable for at least 60 percent of the liability and adds exceptions to the rule that would pertain to economic damages and cases in which a minor has a beneficial interest.
