Corzine Amendment - Law enforcement Law suits

John Corzine (A billionaire Senator - former head of Goldman Sachs investments so he is probably culpable in Enron, Worldcom, or some other fraud - from New Jersey) offered an amendment that none of the bill's provisions would prohibit an officer or employee of any federal, state or local law enforcement agency from recovering damages authorized under federal or state law in a civil action. This would have gutted the bill and given any big city police chief or mayor the right to do what they are doing now and again abuse the process.
