“New Day For Florida’s Legal Climate” Despite Ranking, ILR COO Says

Despite the Florida lawsuit system’s 46th-in-the-nation ranking in the 2019 Lawsuit Climate Survey, U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) Chief Operating Officer Harold Kim said it’s a “new day” for the state.

Kim said the state’s low ranking “reflects its past, not its future, and doesn’t account for recent meaningful reforms spearheaded by Gov. DeSantis and the state legislature.” He also pointed to a recent Florida Supreme Court decision that would help “keep junk science out of Florida courtrooms” by adopting an evidence standard already used in 40 other states and federal courts.

The 2019 Lawsuit Climate Survey: Ranking the States, conducted by Harris Poll, was released by ILR this past Wednesday.
