A bill limiting the legal liability of businesses that provide certain products in the fight against COVID, was tabled by its author after vigorous objections were raised in a Minnesota Senate committee late Thursday. Beth Kadoun with the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce argues it will prevent costly lawsuits targeting businesses that have followed guidelines…

…”while this bill will still — which is very important — still allow recourse for those harmed by truly bad actors.”

But personal injury and medical malpractice attorney Chris Messerly says the Minnesota and U-S Constitutions…

…”for as long as they have existed have given the rights of individuals to seek remedy for their wrongs — to seek justice.   This guts that provision of the Constitution.”

Republican Senator Warren Limmer from Maple Grove tabled his bill, saying he’s “uncomfortable” with it right now.
