Chicago Tribune Editorial Cites ILR, Urges Gov. to Veto SB 3075


The Chicago Tribune editorial board today cites ILR in a piece urging Governor Quinn to veto SB 3075, which would reduce the size of civil juries from twelve to six.

“The bill is a gift to the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, which contributes generously to legislative campaign funds,” according to the editorial. “The bill passed by their friends in the General Assembly is designed to stack the juries in those cases in the plaintiffs’ favor.”

The editorial notes that Illinois courts “already are famously plaintiff-friendly” and “the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform says Cook County is the worst litigation venue in America.”
