GOP Bill Would Restrict Ability Of People To Bring Class Action Lawsuits Versus Corporations. “Rep. Bob Goodlatte has introduced H.R. 1927 – the misleadingly titled Fairness in Class Action Litigation Act of 2015 – which would make it essentially impossible for Americans to join together in bringing class action lawsuits for nearly any illegal act a corporation might undertake. Goodlatte’s bill, which is an extremist wish list from corporate lobbyists, strips away consumer protections on everything from deceptive advertising to privacy invasions. It could roll back wage theft protections for workers, antitrust protections for small businesses and securities fraud protections for investors.” [Huffington Post, 4/30/15]
