Will Wisconsin overthrow joint/several reform?

The proposal by Gov. Jim Doyle, a favorite with the state's trial lawyer lobby, would potentially stick a defendant who was 1 percent to blame with 100 percent of the plaintiff's damages. A business coalition is fighting hard against the measure. [Green Bay Press-Gazette, Milwaukee BizTimes, WMC]. The state's biggest paper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, has editorialized against the measure. On Gov. Doyle's ties to Habush, Habush & Rottier and other trial lawyers, see this column by the J-S's Daniel Bice. More: Boots and Sabers.
