Congress Considering Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act, Again
Per BNA's U.S. Law Week, March 15, 2011, Vol. 79, no. 34:
A House Judiciary subcommittee recently held hearings on the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act, which would amend Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 to make it more like the 1983 version of the rule, which lacked a safe harbor provision and was generally more strict than the current 1993 version of the rule by mandating sanctions for rule violations.
