US Chamber Shoots the Latest Round in the Media Battles Over Litigation

In courtrooms, we are supposed to deal in provable facts. But, outside of court, some say perception matters far more than the facts when it comes to the messages that all sides push out to the public through mass media and social media.

This week, one of the messages that arrived was from the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform (ILR). "[The ILR] released its survey ranking the states with the best and worst legal climates in the country. According to the survey, the states with the worst legal climates are California (46th), Alabama (47th), Mississippi (48th), Louisiana (49th), and West Virginia (50th). The states with the best legal climates are Delaware (1st), North Dakota (2nd), Nebraska (3rd), Indiana (4th), and Iowa (5th)."
