Preventing COVID-Related Lawsuits

Kentucky’s governor stood aside and let a bill become law that protects an array of businesses from coronavirus-related lawsuits. But he warned Monday that the measure is likely to draw a court challenge.The measure, backed by business interests, became law this past weekend without Gov. Andy Beshear’s signature. A veto would have killed the bill since the legislative session has ended.The Democratic governor pointed to the efforts of Republican House Speaker David Osborne to allay concerns about the bill as a reason he allowed it to become law.
