Although South Carolina had several very necessary tort reform bills introduced this year and pushed by our Coalition, none received a hearing. One bill, H.3758, the Fair Share bill, designed to fix our worst in the country approach to the fair apportionment of fault when multiple parties are responsible, did not receive a hearing, even though the bill had fifty-five co-sponsors!

The South Carolina Coalition for Lawsuit Reform (SCCLR) serves as the united voice for the business community on tort and workers' compensation issues; coordinating lobbying, legal, grassroots and public relations activities.
