Is Georgia’s 2005 Tort Reform requiring Apportionment Constitutional?   Leave a comment

 The Georgia Supreme Court will hopefully look at this issue soon. The 2005 so-called “Tort Reform” has caused more problems than it has solved. Many Plaintiff’s lawyers feel forced to sue everyone who could ever conceivably be held at fault, rather than focusing the claim on the primary culprit(s). I’m defending a case now where the plaintiff has sued a landscaping restrictive covenants committee for failing to enforce covenants to trim bushes. The theory is that the bushes restricted the driver’s view, causing a car wreck. They’ve also sued the owner of the land, some of the companies that developed the business park and the landscaping contractor.
