"Mike Schofield is a knowledgeable, articulate proponent of the lawsuit reforms that have strengthened our state economy, created jobs and increased access to health care. Mike has worked closely with TLR for over a decade to move Texas from the infamous "lawsuit capitol of the world" to a leader in establishing a fair and predictable civil justice system. He will be a skilled legislator and an energetic and effective counterweight to the many trial lawyers in the Texas House who try to advance the trial lawyers' agenda."
(Odessa, TX) - Texans for Lawsuit Reform has awarded State Representative Tryon
Lewis the TLR Civil Justice Leadership Award for his support of a fair and predictable
civil justice system in Texas.
The November 2nd elections in Texas were not only traditional partisan contests, but also a reflection of the continuing battle to maintain and improve the successful lawsuit reforms of the last fifteen years, which have helped make Texas the best state in the nation in which to start or grow a business and create jobs. A handful of personal injury trial lawyers spent millions of dollars in a futile effort to elect legislators who would roll back or diminish tort reform. One trial lawyer, Steve Mostyn, put in nearly ten million dollars of his own money to influence Texas elections in this cycle. In contrast, the funding for TLR PAC, and therefore for the candidates we support, comes from scores of different professions and occupations, including homemakers, consultants, retailers, ranchers, farmers, manufacturers, miners, developers, entrepreneurs, physicians, lawyers, accountants … and the list goes on.
