DONOHUE: America, the Land of the Lawsuit?

Tom Donohue, in an op-ed published in Noozhawk, writes about our recent report which showed America to have the world’s costliest legal system.

Donohue writes:

“A rising tide of lawsuits sinks all boats. When a few members of the trial bar are able to game a flawed legal system, they destroy jobs and stifle growth across the economy.”

He also pointed to the results of the public opinion survey we released that showed:

  • 87 percent of voters think that the number of lawsuits in the country is a problem; 
  • 69 percent believe that abuse in the legal system has risen sharply over the past decade; 
  • One in three voters have either been threatened with or involved in a civil lawsuit; and, 
  • 43 percent of small businesses have faced litigation or the threat of legal action.
