    • 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
