Wisconsin Enacts First-In-Nation Law Requiring Disclosure of Litigation Funding Agreements

Wisconsin Enacts First-In-Nation Law Requiring Disclosure of Litigation Funding Agreements

Civil litigants  in Wisconsin state court will have to disclose any litigation funding agreements under a bill signed into law by that state’s Governor Scott Walker earlier this month.

It’s the first state law of its kind, according to published reports.

The law revises the state’s requirements for discovery in civil litigation.
A National Law Journal article about the new law is available (behind subscription wall) here and a press release from U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for Legal Reform is here.
