Relating to the transfer of civil cases by the judicial panel on multidistrict litigation.
SB 827 would prohibit the judicial panel on multi-district litigation (MDL) from transferring a case into the MDL if the action is brought under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act or the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act. This would allow the Office of the Attorney General to seek injunctive relief against defendants for continuing violations of these acts, without the interference of a MDL.
Texas Action is neutral on SB 827 because is an administrative bill which does not affect our liberty principles.
