Report Shows Lawsuit Abuse is a Widespread Problem

I commend the American Tort Reform Association for shining a spotlight on some of the nation’s most troublesome jurisdictions for lawsuit abuse with their release of the Judicial Hellholes 2010/2011 report.  This report outlines many problems in these jurisdictions and should serve as a reminder to courts and state legislatures of the continued need for action.

At a time of high unemployment and sluggish economic growth, Americans are demanding policies that will lead to more jobs, not more lawsuits.  Enacting pro-growth legal reforms in the nation’s worst problem litigation jurisdictions would be a good place to start.
