POLITICAL AND GOVERNMENT ROUNDUP: Senate approves cuts to State's Lemon Law
The state Senate has watered down Wisconsin's Lemon Law. The vote was 32-to-1 yesterday to give fewer legal protections to those who buy defective new cars. Middleton Democrat Jon Erpenbach cast the only no vote. The measure now goes to Governor Scott Walker for his signature. An association of plaintiffs' attorneys endorsed the bill's final version. It would end the requirement that automakers pay double-damages to consumers who win in court. Wisconsin is the only state which mandates that.
