    • Relaxed requirements to participate in a class action lawsuit
    • Made it easier to sue anyone who had done business with the state
    • Made it legal for someone suing a business owner to receive wages and attorney’s fees for alleged acts of discrimination
    • Allowed a business owner to be sued if someone was hurt on their property even if they had no contact with the business owner

    Led the Efforts to Stop 'Ban The Box'

    during the application process.
