CRIMINAL LAW: Murder in the First Degree

A criminal law has been introduced to the Oklahoma State Senate, which would expand the definition of first degree murder. Senate Bill 1066 is aimed at providing express statutory consequences for the state's drug manufacturing and distribution problem. While common sense might suggest that first-degree murder is a simple concept, the legal interpretation provides various elements and situations to which first-degree murder may or may not apply.

NEW LAW: Severe Weather Liability

Governor Mary Fallin signed a new law on Friday, May 5. The law went into effect immediately upon her signature in an effort for it to make an impact before this year's tornado season comes to a close. HB 2419 eliminates civil liability for individuals and businesses who allow others seeking refuge from severe weather to temporarily enter their homes or businesses. The bill was originally created and passed unanimously in the State Senate and passed the State House by a vote of 89-2.
