Chamber of Commerce State by State Rankings
How to create more spin and keep a theme in the air. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for Legal Reform released its latest survey ranking states U.S. businesses perceive as having the most "fair and reasonable" tort liability systems.
Despite a recent award of over $ 300 million in attorney’s fees, the most loved state of course was Delaware. Next were states where there can’t be too many lawsuits – Nebraska, Wyoming, Minnesota and Kansas. The not loved states at the bottom were West Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi, California and Illinois.
The survey is based on perceptions of inside lawyers and executives. The rankings are here. Perhaps some day judges, mediators and court system executives will start a ranking of the most litigious and least fair insurers and non-insurers.
