Lingering concerns over whether individuals can sue tech firms could cause some final hiccups. Lawmakers have struck a compromise that should work. People can sue tech companies after two years, as long as they notify state and local officials. This way, consumers can seek redress but companies won’t be caught flat-footed by a change in what they’re permitted to do.
