Sen. John Cornyn Urges Congress Protect Businesses From a “Lawsuits Epidemic”

Yesterday, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) spoke on the Senate floor about the need for Congress to protect American businesses from a “lawsuit epidemic.”

“…With the states beginning to gradually reopen their economies, we’re staring down the barrel of a second epidemic, one generated by opportunistic lawsuits, crushing legal fees and drawn out court battles,” Senator Cornyn said on the Senate floor. “We’ve seen suits against health care workers, nursing homes, colleges, governments, retailers, you name it. As our economy begins to reopen, unfortunately so will the legal floodgates.”
