The 2019-2020 Judicial Hellholes report from the American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) is out!
The report identifies areas of the country where lawsuit abuse is rampant and justice is not evenly applied. While questionable legal practices and junk lawsuits continue to be a problem in Texas, our state’s work to shed its reputation as the nation’s lawsuit abuse poster child continues to make the grade: Texas is not on this year’s hellholes list.
Texas not only avoided the Judicial Hellholes list but was recognized for positive lawsuit reforms enacted by our state Legislature in 2019.
However, other areas, including neighbors to the east in Louisiana and north in Oklahoma, still have their work cut out for them.
