Can you afford an Attorney? 4.If you are marketing products are you covered personally? 5. "The Year 2000 Readiness and Responsibility Act" , In an effort to head off a potential avalanche of lawsuits caused by Y2K glitches, a bipartisan group of House members yesterday introduced a bill to address litigation issues. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has introduced a similar bill, and Sens. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) plan to announce their version today.

* Although the House bill has the support of major business organizations, Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), the measure's principal author, stressed that the measure was "pro-consumer" because it will "encourage businesses to come in and fix their problems."

*The Year 2000 Readiness and Responsibility Act would require plaintiffs to give notice to potential defendants about their difficulties, wait 30 days for a response and give the defendant an additional 60 days to fix a glitch before suing.

*Under the bill, plaintiffs may recover actual damages, but punitive damages would be capped.
