Rep. Peter King eyes protecting terror tipsters from lawsuits
by Joseph Straw
If you see something, say something - and don't worry about getting sued.
That's the push Rep. Pete King is making in Congress, hoping to expand liability protection for people who report something fishy that could indicate a terror plot.
"Good citizens who report suspicious activity should not have to worry about being sued," said King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
A 2007 law only covers tips made on passenger transportation - but not by the man on the street, like hero Times Square vendors Lance Orton and Duane Jackson.
