From the Southeast Texas Record

Recent numbers pulled together by the Texas Civil Justice League from several sources show a new law providing COVID-19 civil liability protections for employers, health care providers, and non-profits following appropriate public health protocols is working.
The Pandemic Liability Protection Act was designed to steer these claims through the state’s Worker’s Compensation System and keep them out of court. That is what is happening, keeping our courts open to considering other issues in a system still backed up because of the pandemic.
Lawmakers did the right thing in passing this legislation that is benefiting the state’s economy and helping our continued recovery from the pandemic.
