Class Action Reform Tabled

As predicted, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has been forced to table the Class Action Fairness Act until after the completion of the 2005 Department of Defense authorization bill. The Hill has this report.

Quote of note: “With several of the class-action bill’s co-sponsors opposing the cloture vote, Frist probably lacked the votes yesterday to limit debate on the defense bill. Frist said he remains committed to bringing the class-action bill to the floor and said he would move ‘immediately’ to it after the defense bill was complete.”
