Colorado: Litigation Lobby efforts fall short

The Colorado Civil Justice League reports (not yet online) that the state's trial lawyers fell far short this session of enacting the ambitious legislative agenda they had envisioned:

Despite the fervent efforts of the various trial lawyer groups to erode Colorado's generally favorable civil litigation climate, the Colorado Civil Justice League had an exceptional 2009 legislative session. The Colorado plaintiffs bar attempted to expand business liability in a number of areas this year (employment law, construction defects, medical malpractice, health insurance, among others) but largely came up short.

Of six bills, only one that was relatively minor (reducing bonding requirements for court costs) made it into law.
