Tort reformers encouraged by election outcome
Tort reform advocates say that Tuesday’s elections will enhance their efforts in the next Congress.
Two ardent Senate opponents of tort reform—Sens. Ernest Hollings, D-S.C. and John Edwards, D-N.C. —chose not to seek re-election, while another—Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D. —was defeated. All were replaced by Republicans thought to be more amenable to tort reform.
