    Texas gets ‘loser pays’ tort reform law to end frivolous lawsuits

    Bill: HB274 (PDF)

    Authored by Rep. Brandon Creighton and signed into law by Gov. Rick Perry, HB274 amends the Civil Practice and Remedies Code to require a court that hears a civil proceeding, on a motion to dismiss, to award costs and reasonable and necessary attorney’s fees to the prevailing party, except in specified actions. Parties who lose a motion to dismiss must pay the other sides’ court costs and attorneys’ fees.
