Palmetto Business Daily highlights support for the FACT Act from South Carolina’s civil justice group, also noting that U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold a hearing on the bill tomorrow.
“We are hopeful that the Senate will pass the FACT Act and bring some fairness and transparency to the overall system, and resolve the conflict that currently exists between the trusts and state civil courts,” said Earl Hunter, executive director of the South Carolina Civil Justice Coalition.
Illinois Business Daily also features a story on the FACT Act, with Illinois Civil Justice League president John Pastuovic saying the need to pass the legislation is “critical.”
“Passing the FACT Act is critical to the integrity of the bankruptcy settlement trust,” said Pastuovic. “I would strongly urge Illinois Senator Dick Durbin (a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee) to do the right thing by supporting this legislation, which will protect the trusts from future fraud.”
