Illinois Comes in Fifth on Annual Judicial Hellhole Report


Illinois isn’t the lawsuit capital of America… but it’s close, according to a group pushing for stricter rules governing where and how civil suits can be filed.

 

The American Tort Reform Foundation puts California at the top of its annual “Judicial Hellhole” report, with New York second.

 

Illinois comes in fifth, primarily for Madison and St. Clair counties, two jurisdictions often used by lawyers seeking to file class-action suits.

 

The group says those two counties represent a blatant manipulation of the state’s judicial system.
