COVID-19 Liability Bill Being Considered By Texas House

Last week, Texas lawmakers reviewed a bill that would provide expanded COVID-19 liability protection to health care facilities and workers, first responders, businesses, and educational institutions, according to a report in Law 360.

H.B. 3659 would allow defendants to dismiss certain lawsuits linked to COVID-19, while keeping alive lawsuits based on the defendants’ actual malice or reckless and intentional conduct. If passed, the bill would act retroactively and potentially apply to lawsuits filed since Gov. Greg Abbott declared the pandemic a state disaster on March 13, 2020.
