Recent Victory: Texas Legislation Involving Playground Safety

The firm is especially proud of one of our accomplishments during the 2009 legislative session. Mr. Laney worked on a pro bono basis with a client to help ensure the safety of Texas children when it comes to the risk of serious injuries involving playground equipment purchased using state funds. Legislation was quietly moving through the process that was presented as an update regarding playground equipment safety regulations. However, the legislation had the effect of actually removing prohibitions on the purchase of playground equipment that could cause serious burns to young children. Mr. Laney and his client quickly jumped in and worked with a State Senator, State Representative, and the proponents of the legislation to ensure those protections remained in the law.
