Joint and Several with DWOP
We have a case where joint and several liability applies, but I may need to dismiss and refile later. Will I lose joint and several?
Answer: Not to worry. Senate Bill 862, which amends 23 O.S. 2010 Supp. §15, and does away with joint and several liability purports to apply only to actions that accrue after November 1, 2011. However, dismissing and refiling may get you in trouble on other of the"tort reform" statutes.
