White House Mulls ‘Liability Shield’ for Firms

“White House officials are hotly debating whether and how to propose a ‘liability shield’ that would prevent businesses from being sued by customers who contract the coronavirus, as the administration seeks to encourage businesses to reopen without fear of being hit by lawsuits,” the Washington Post reports.

“Attorneys in the White House Counsel’s Office are reviewing the matter, but some administration officials have raised objections to the idea, including whether it would expose the federal government to legal claims… Some White House advisers also have expressed concern that the plan might provoke a political firestorm.”
