Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
This initiative changes the way damages can be collected from parties to lawsuits who share fault for injury to persons or property. The law now says that a party more than half responsible could be liable for the total judgment. Parties may collect from each other, amounts paid over their share. Parties less than half responsible pay only up to twice their fault.
The initiative would make each party liable only for damages equal to his or her share of fault, and repeal the law concerning reimbursement from other parties.
Shall this initiative become law?
