Bill of the Week: HB 587

This bill, House Bill 587, the main caption states, “TO REQUIRE THE PARTY THAT DOES NOT PREVAIL IN AN ADVERSE POSSESSION ACTION TO PAY COURT COSTS AND ATTORNEY’S FEES.”

What does this mean?

Basically that if you sue someone and you do not win, you are responsible for paying back their court costs and attorney fees they had to pay.

This bill is introduced by Republican, House of Representatives member, Randy Boyd, who is over District 19.

The next step for this bill is to go through the appropriate committee it was assigned to, which is Judiciary A House Committee. From there, it will come back to the House to vote on or make any changes and if it is passed it will then go to the Senate.
