Now Sitting on Governor Pritzker’s Desk: The Trial Lawyers’ Prejudgment Interest Bill!
Senate Bill 72 has been sent to Governor Pritzker for him to either veto or sign into law.
Please contact Governor Pritzker and urge him to VETO Senate Bill 72!
Senate Bill 72 would institute prejudgment interest in medical liability cases, which would begin accruing on the date the action is filed and would add interest to the amount of a judgment at the rate of 6% per year.
Delays during civil litigation frequently occur due to reasons outside a defendant’s control. This has been further exacerbated by COVID-19, which has dramatically slowed civil proceedings.
If you have questions, please contact ISMS Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Erin O'Brien by email.
