Boring Legal Stuff Act

1. The creation of any future fee tail estates of land succession is hereby prohibited. Any existing land in the Southern Region held as a fee tail shall be considered a fee simple estate.
2. No civil lawsuit for products liability claims against an aircraft shall be heard in southern courts after 10 years of sale or the life of any accompanying express warranty, whichever is greater.
3. Any land owners shall have a possessory lien and may physically impound cattle owned by another person if the cattle crash through the landowner’s fence, until such time that the cattle owner pays for the damage to the fence and a reasonable impoundment fee.
4. No court in the Southern Region shall recognize a theory of contributory negligence in torts actions.
5. In any southern court where an affirmative defense of self-defense is being offered, the southern court shall apply the common law castle doctrine and the common law stand-your-ground tests.
6. In actions at tort in the Southern Region, a landowner owes no duty of care to an unknown and uninvited trespasser, other than a duty to reasonably protect against children drawn to an attractive nuisance.
7. Any defendant in a southern court shall be entitled to an expedited motion to dismiss against frivolous tort claims based on mental or emotional distress, mental or emotional anguish, or claims related to endangerment against a business due to that business allowing transgender customers to use the bathroom corresponding to their self-identified gender.
8. This act shall go into effect 6 months after the date of passage.

1. Is a really stupid obsolete way that land can be owned by a family and then reverts back to the heirs of the original owner if the first family all die out. Archaic and should be stricken from the books, even if no one functionally does this anymore.

2. Sets a fair statute of limitations on regional products liability lawsuits against airplane manufacturers at 10 years or longer if agreed to by contract.

3. Lets landowners impound their neighbors cattle if the neighbor doesnt fix the fence the cattle crashed through

4. This one is weird for me because Virginia is one of like 4 states to use this rule, the other 3 being in the south as well. Basically if both parties in an accident were being negligent, neither can sue for anything. So if person A was speeding 6 or 7 miles above the speed limit, and Person B runs a red light while looking at her phone while fleeing a hit and run, Person A cant sue Person B if Person B crashes into them. 46 States calculate the percentage at fault each party is and adjust damages accordingly. Under the new system I am proposing we adopt, Person A could sue Person B and probably recover 90% of their damages.

5. Allows defendants to raise a self defense argument in court in situations where the defendant did not run away from their home or a public place respectively.

6. Makes it very hard for trespassers to sue you for hurting themselves while trespassing. An attempted burglar should not be able to sue his victim for having dug holes in the backyard without providing a light. I did however leave in the common law rule preventing "attractive nuisances" which are basically dangerous things that dumb kids mess with. The typical example is swimming pools where a lack of fencing can be viewed as negligent if a small neighborhood child trespasses and drowns because the pool was not fenced off.

7. Provides a quick way for business defendants to dismiss bogus lawsuits filed by idiots who claim seeing transgender persons in the bathroom caused the trauma or pain or some other bullsh**t. After Target allowed transpeople to use the bathroom of their choice in the store, several dingbats tried to sue Target because they claimed fear/shock/anguish/pain/emotional and physical problems. The courts should not be abused with fake harassing lawsuits.

This wont require an amendment or stopping the motion, but I noticed I made a typo in # 7. It says "based on of mental" instead of "based on mental". Mr speaker or deputy speaker, would either of you please use your power to fix typos to delete the unintended "of"? Thanks.

Objection, to correct the typo Mr. R pointed out.
I propose the following amendment:

Quote

1. The creation of any future fee tail estates of land succession is hereby prohibited. Any existing land in the Southern Region held as a fee tail shall be considered a fee simple estate.
2. No civil lawsuit for products liability claims against an aircraft shall be heard in southern courts after 10 years of sale or the life of any accompanying express warranty, whichever is greater.
3. Any land owners shall have a possessory lien and may physically impound cattle owned by another person if the cattle crash through the landowner’s fence, until such time that the cattle owner pays for the damage to the fence and a reasonable impoundment fee.

5. In any southern court where an affirmative defense of self-defense is being offered, the southern court shall apply the common law castle doctrine and the common law stand-your-ground tests.
6. In actions at tort in the Southern Region, a landowner owes no duty of care to an unknown and uninvited trespasser, other than a duty to reasonably protect against children drawn to an attractive nuisance.
7.

The objection to a final vote is heard; the motion fails.
I seek unanimous consent for my amendment. 24 hours to object.
