And so to bed

Oregon's med-mal initiative is still hanging (for newer results, revisit/reload linked pages). Wyoming's didn't look good with half the vote counted, but I haven't found updated figures. In the other four states, the lawsuit-reform side seems to have virtually swept the table, dealing a huge defeat to Florida trial lawyers on fees (despite the passage of their two revenge initiatives), a thorough defeat to those in Nevada (who lost badly on their counterinitiatives), scoring a convincing win for California businesses in their quest to reform the unfair-practices law, and lopsidedly defeating the Colorado measure to expand construction litigation. In both hot judicial campaigns, the trial-lawyer-backed candidates lost. See you tomorrow.
