PA's ranking in Tort Climate study

The Pacific Research Institute has released its 2010 U.S. Tort Liability Index. This study ranks each states' "tort climate."

According to the press release, the "best" tort climates are (in order) Alaska, Hawaii, North Carolina, South Dakota, North Dakota, Maine, Idaho, Virginia, Wisconsin and Iowa. The "worst" tort climates are (in order) New Jersey, New York, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Montana, Michigan, Connecticut, and California.

This study was performed by hard-core supporters of tort reform. Be that as it may, it is still an interesting study. Obviously PA is weighted toward the bottom of the list as a result of the higher verdicts that arise out of Philadelphia. Share this post :
