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.
On the heels of the historic 2011-12 legislative session, WCJC once again had a successful session for 2013-14. Several WCJC priority bills were enacted. 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).
