Governor Jim Doyle vetoed four civil justice reform proposals, including measures overturning the Wisconsin Supreme Court's politicized lead-paint decision (Nov. 23, Aug. 11, OL Jul. 23), a measure moving Wisconsin's lenient expert-evidence standards to Daubert, immunity for firearms manufacturers, and a product-liability reform bill. (Ben Fischer, "Governor vetoes bills on liability", Wisconsin State Journal, Jan. 6) (via Bashman). The governor had earlier vetoed medical malpractice reform.
