Title: Statutory Adoption of Several Liability: A Commentary and Quasi-Legislative History
Author: Occhialino, Mario; Schultz, Andrew
Abstract: The 1987 Legislature adopted a statute incorporating the doctrine of several liability into the law of New Mexico. No official legislative history of the adoption of the statute exists and this article does not memorialize the intent of the lawmakers who adopted the several liability statute. Instead, the article presents a statement of the goals of the drafters and an informal record of the process by which Senate Bill 164 progressed through many drafts to become Chapter 141 of the Laws of 1987. The authors are but two of the many persons who participated in the drafting process; thus, they cannot present a definitive statement of the goals of each drafter of the statute. Nonetheless, the authors offer this commentary in the hope that it will assist the courts in the construction of the statute's terms and will aid attorneys in an understanding of its workings.
