Fixing Florida’s Broken Legal System


While Florida’s economy has much to celebrate, economic uncertainty is growing in Washington, D.C. and around the globe. Unfortunately, Florida is known as a “Judicial Hellhole”. Lawsuit abuse is an increasingly serious and expensive problem that’s getting worse. Florida’s bottom-five legal environment is an open invitation for “gotcha” lawsuits that cost Florida families and businesses about $4,442 each year in lawsuit abuse costs. Billboard trial lawyers advertising to “sue someone today” is big business in Florida. Until the Florida Legislature stands up to the well-funded trial lawyers, and until Florida’s s civil justice system improves, and Florida’s competitiveness will suffer. The Florida Chamber of Commerce has long fought for common sense reforms to fix Florida’s broken legal system. A unified voice from Florida’s business community is key to the fight.
