AUSTIN – Texans for Lawsuit Reform (TLR) issued the following statement regarding Senate Bill 2342 and House Bill 3336, which help increase access to courts for Texans.
“For many Texans, the time and cost of taking a small dispute to court is too high to pursue. A person’s economic status should not cut off their right to the courts,” TLR General Counsel Lee Parsley said. “Moving lawsuits more quickly through the courts helps ensure Texans of all backgrounds have access to an affordable, fair and efficient legal system. For the last decade, expedited claims and justices of the peace have helped more Texans resolve their disputes more quickly and less expensively. These bills would expand those successful procedures to apply to more lawsuits.”
