(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota lawmakers are considering a bill meant to protect victims of domestic abuse. The bill would shield people from abusive litigation, which is when a person files a quick series of lawsuits against a former romantic partner that could be considered harassment or abuse. The bill’s sponsor would relieve victims of the financial burden that accompanies responding to flurries of nuisance suits. Those found guilty of abusive litigation would have their suits and motions against a former partner vetted by a judge before it is sent forward.
