News comes from Chris Morran over at Consumerist that the House version of a bill banning non-disparagement clauses in form consumer contracts, which passed the Senate late last year, was passed on a voice vote in the House of Representatives today. Looks as if this bill will become law before the year it out. Good news!
Maybe not such good news, however, for Prestigious Pets, whose lawyer Bill Richmond has been continuing a pet-sitting firm's campaign of intimidation against a couple that had hired the firm to take care of their pets, by talking to the press about appealing the dismissal of its million-dollar damages lawsuit over violation of a non-disparagement clause in the pet-sitting agreement.
