Congress Can Pass Protections For Reopened Businesses Scared Of COVID-19 Lawsuits: Congress has the authority to pass protections for businesses that are worried reopening during the coronavirus pandemic will lead to costly litigation initiated by personal injury lawyers, says a memorandum published by The Federalist Society. The memo says there can be no “serious question” of Congress’ authority to pass temporary limits on lawsuits to help restaurants, schools and other industries hoping to reopen. Congress has already done so “countless times,” the memo says. The memo was authored by Michael Carvin and Yaakov Roth, two partners at Jones Day. (Legal Newsline)
