ATRA Testifies in Support of MMPA Reform

Today, February 23, 2016, Jennifer Artman of Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP testified for ATRA in support of Senate Bill 793, legislation to reform Missouri’s Merchandising Practices Act (MMPA).   Artman noted the 678% growth in MMPA litigation from 2000-2009 and highlighted some egregious examples of abuse.  According to Artman, S.B. 793 would make important and necessary changes to the MMPA to stop unwarranted and expensive litigation, and create a fairer environment for all litigants.  To read Artman’s testimony, please click here.
