In a strongly bi-partisan move, the House overwhelmingly passed a bill that will stop the class-action vultures in their tracks. The "fast food" lawsuits will effectively be banned.

You'd have to assume that, with a 2:1 vote in the House, the Senate will pass it very quickly and the President will sign it without comment.

Too bad they haven't reacted quite so quickly on other class-action abuses. My favorite one is a number of suits I've seen that result in a finding for the plaintiffs with no damages being awarded to the plaintiffs -- only an agreement from the defendant to change their policies, practices or products. Of course, the attorneys walk away with millions.

This has to stop.
