House Bill Would Hurt Employees, Consumers, And Investors


Fairness in Class Action Litigation Act - Madoff and Goodlatte

The GOP lead House Judiciary Committee passed a bill titled the “Fairness in Class Action Litigation Act” which is anything but fair.

This bill—if passed—would actually encourage more corporate fraud against consumers and individuals because it would nearly eliminate the class action mechanism whereby people can join together to sue for investor cheating, consumer rights, privacy issues, wage theft, and anyone who faces a large, well-funded wrongdoer.  Read more about the bill in the Huffington Post Article below.

The House passed this bill over Democratic objections and will move to the Senate. Call your Senator and urge him or her to oppose the Fairness in Class Action Litigation Act.
