The 2024 Legislature convened on January 8 for a 60-day session. With a plaintiffs lawyer-friendly House of Representatives and Senate as well as a former plaintiffs lawyer as governor, the LRC has its work cut out this session.  For a complete run-down on the status of liability bills, check out the LRC Bill Tracker.

One of the most concerning measures of the session is SB 5059.  This measure would change long-standing Washington law and threaten to raise the cost of seeking justice for businesses, schools, local governments, front-line health care providers and non-profit organizations.

The Legislature has a responsibility to protect Washington employers and workers from abusive and costly litigation.  Review our convenient SB 5059 Issue Brief.
