House Cracks Down on "Frivolous" Lawsuits

AP is reporting on the House's passage of legislation that would toughen the sanctions regime for lawyers in an effort to reduce the number of "frivolous" lawsuits:

"The House on Thursday passed a bill that would take away lawyers' licenses if they repeatedly file frivolous lawsuits, the latest in a Republican drive to crack down on what they consider costly abuses of the legal system."

This measure harkens back to the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act, which failed to gain approval during the last Congress.
