‘Loser pays’ legislation filed in Texas

Two tort reform bills aimed at implementing a "loser pays" system in Texas have been filed in the state legislature. The Senate bill, S.B. 13, filed by Houston Republican Sen. Joan Huffman, would allow the prevailing party in certain actions to recover attorney fees.
