Loser Pays Legislation Signed Into Law In Texas

Texas Governor Rick Perry signed into law a measure that will further limit the filing of frivolous lawsuits by making the party who filed the lawsuit pay the other party's court costs. Under the loser pays model, if the party filing the lawsuit, usually referred to as the "plaintiff," loses the case, then the defendant can ask the judge make the plaintiff pay the defendant's court costs. Likewise, if the plaintiff wins the case, then the plaintiff can make the defendant pay their court costs. Court costs often run into the thousands and tens of thousands of dollars in bigger cases.
