Legal Reform

The sunny climate may be one of Florida’s most enduring assets, but unfair laws and courts are storm clouds on Florida’s horizon. This is a reasonable conclusion from the findings of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) newly released 2015 Lawsuit Climate Survey ranking the fifty states on their lawsuit systems. For the fourth consecutive time, the Sunshine State sits in the bottom ten, 44th out of 50. This is a three-spot drop from the last survey three years ago.
