Delaware: “Landowner Liability Protection Act” Delayed by Trial Lawyers in Committee!

Friday, May 16, 2008

Last week, a scheduled vote on House Bill 341, the “Landowner Liability Protection Act,” in the House Housing & Community Affairs Committee was delayed because of opposition from the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association.  HB 341, sponsored by State Representative William Carson (D-28), would ensure that landowners who allow public hunting access incur no liability for property damage or personal injuries caused by hunters -- regardless of whether the damage occurs on or off the landowner's property.  This proposal affirms the basic American principle of individual responsibility.  A landowner should not be held liable for the actions of a hunter---and any reasonable trial lawyer knows it! 

If House Bill 341 is not enacted, landowners will continue to deny access to hunters for fear of being sued.  The House Housing and Community Affairs Committee is expected to take up this legislation during the week of June 2, 2008.  Please continue to contact committee members and respectfully urge them to support this crucial piece of legislation.
