And Here's the Chamber's Report



The U.S. Chamber's Institute for Legal Reform has its report now online, "Lawsuit Climate 2008," with a link to the full Harris Interactive survey (1MB, .pdf)

From the news release:

WASHINGTON, DC - Senior attorneys at America's largest employers say state court liability systems have steadily improved over the last several years, but less than half of them rate the state courts as "excellent" or "pretty good." These lawyers say Delaware still has the best legal climate in the country, and West Virginia remains the worst.
Reason to be of good cheer: "An analysis of the data over the seven years Harris has conducted the survey indicates an overall improvement in state legal climates. In a number of states, this trend correlates with legal reforms enacted over the same period."
