Senate Votes Down Controversial Consumer Fraud Bill

The Senate has voted and failed to pass the class action bill that would result in benefits for large companies and injured consumers. Public Citizen consumer group had been actively opposing the bill and issued a press release stating “the bill would have given corporate defendants an undue advantage in fighting legitimate lawsuits involving consumer fraud and unfair workplace practices .” The group saw the defeat as a great victory and said that they “commend them for stopping a bill that would have closed the courthouse door on millions of consumers.”
