AAJ Disputes Results of Pro-Business Group’s Survey of Tort Liability Systems

The Legal Times ”The BLT” blog reports that the American Association for Justice recently took issue with a survey released by the pro-business US Chamber Institute for Legal Reform. According to the blog post, the survey was meant to demonstrate which states in the nation are perceived by American businesses as having the most “fair and reasonable” tort liability systems. The story notes that the institute’s survey indicated that the top five states perceived in this regard were Delaware, Nebraska, Wyoming, Minnesota and Kansas, while the bottom five were West Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi, California and Illinois. However, as the blog post describes, a written statement from AAJ press secretary Michelle Kimmel “took issue with the survey’s wording and methodology.” Kimmel noted that “a Copley News Service story found that the ‘U.S. Chamber’s own pollster admitted that there is no way to measure the fairness of a state’s legal system.’” Kimmel adds, “If you want to know the truth about this survey, look no further than the source: The U.S. Chamber is a front group for multinational pharmaceutical, asbestos, and Wall Street corporations that want to undermine and eliminate America’s civil justice system so they won’t be held accountable for their misconduct.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
