"Judicial Hellholes 2005"



The American Tort Reform Association is out with its annual listing of what it considers the worst or most unfair jurisdictions to be sued in. In order, this year's top picks are: the Rio Grande Valley and Gulf Coast, Texas; Cook County, Ill.; West Virginia; Madison and St. Clair Counties, Ill.; and South Florida. Another feature is "Points of Light" -- places where progress has lately been made against abusive litigation. New this year is a "Watch List" of localities where disturbing trends are on the horizon, or which have scored badly in the recent past.
