The Wisconsin Civil Justice Council (WCJC) was formed by leading Wisconsin business organizations to counter the plaintiffs’ bar’s attempts to make it easier to sue businesses.
For WCJC, the first portion of the 2013-14 legislative session has been very active and successful. Numerous bills supported by WCJC have received public hearings, passed the Assembly and await action in the Senate. Click here for an update on bills supported by WCJC.
The Fall 2013 WCJC President’s Report can be found here.
Since that report, several WCJC supported bills have passed and signed by the Governor. These included our TiPAC bill (2013 Act 105), lauded as the strongest outside counsel sunshine bill in the nation, as well as the physician’s duty to inform (2013 Act 111). Another long-awaited reform was changes to what was the worst Lemon Law in the country (2013 Act 101).
