Mississippi Senate Bill No. 2376 is a proposal to abolish Mississippi’s fairly ridiculous alienation of affection cause of action:

Section 1.  The tort of alienation of affection is abolished, and no cause of action shall lie thereon at the suit of any party.

Section 2 would make the bill effective on July 1, 2013.

My Take:

This would be a good law.

I would like the draftsmanship better if there was a period after abolished and the rest of the section left out. I hate words like “theron.” And “no cause of action shall like thereon at the suit of any party”? Unnecessary in my opinion.

Our legislature is probably too busy trying to secede from the Union to pass it.
