FJRI cheers tort reform success — After HB 837 cleared the committee, Florida Justice Reform Institute President William Large said, “Gov. DeSantis has repeatedly pledged to take on the toughest issues and he has delivered. Now, with help from the Legislature, he’s taking on the trial lawyers in dramatic fashion and leading Florida toward a more predictable, stable legal environment that focuses on fairness and personal responsibility. The Florida Justice Reform Institute commends Gov. DeSantis, House Speaker Renner, and the bill sponsors Reps. Gregory and Fabricio for their leadership on HB 837, the most consequential civil litigation reform in a generation.”
