  • The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform Commends Judicial Hellholes for Highlighting Nation's Worst Civil Justice Jurisdictions
December 05, 2018

Lisa A. Rickard, president of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR),made the following statement on the release of the American Tort Reform Association’s (ATRA) Judicial Hellholes 2018/2019:

“We applaud the Judicial Hellholes report for shining a spotlight on some of the nation’s worst lawsuit jurisdictions. The U.S. tort system is not only inefficient, it is also expensive. This report will be a great resource in the fight to improve the legal
system.”

In October, ILR released Costs and Compensation of the U.S. Tort System, a report that shows the costs and compensation paid in the U.S. tort system totaled $429 billion in 2016—the highest ever recorded.

ILR seeks to promote civil justice reform through legislative, political, judicial, and educational activities at the global, national, state, and local levels.
