West Virginians Concerned About Legal Costs



Apropos Walter's post on Chesapeake Energy deciding to build a $30 million headquarters someplace other than West Virginia, we note this recent article from the Chamber-supported West Virginia Record, "Survey shows potential jurors uneasy about lawsuits."

CHARLESTON -- A new survey of potential West Virginia jurors reveals they think lawsuits hurt the state's economy and job market. The survey, conducted by Charleston-based Mark Blankenship Enterprises, found that 45 percent of those potential jurors questioned say lawsuit have a negative impact on the economy and job market. Of those, 24 percent believe lawsuits have a "very negative" impact, while 21 percent say the impact is "somewhat negative."

The Mark Blankenship Enterprises survey memo is available here.
