Did tort reform impact application of Duggins?

Just wondering and decided to post the question – not that the thought struck me out of the blue but that the question is one a lawyer would need to answer and that I’m not.

Given Judge Senter’s decisions disqualifying law firms that were not members of SKG, I’ve been researching the concept of vicarious liability – research that led to the related concept of joint and several liability and a website that explained related Mississippi tort reform legislation

Joint Liability Reform: H.B. 13 (special session) (2004). Abolishes joint and several liability. Provides that defendants are not responsible for any fault allocated to an immune tortfeasor or a tortfeasor whose liability is limited by law.

Here’s a link to the legislation signed into law. Feedback wanted and most welcome.
