California Named Worst “Judicial Hellhole” in the Nation for Second Year Running

California once again was named the #1 “judicial hellhole” in America by the American Tort Reform Foundation in its 12th annual Judicial Hellholes report. California has been included in the report every year in some form since it was first issued in 2002; last year taking the #1 spot for the first time.

This year’s report focuses on how California’s infamous “food court” in the Northern District of California attracts consumer class action lawsuits against all kinds of food makers. The report also highlights the ongoing problems with exploitative disabled access lawsuits.

Sadly, this report is not surprising. California is viewed as having the least fair judicial system in the entire country. Lawyers sue over minor technicalities, or sue the yogurt company on behalf of everyone who ever bought yogurt when 99.9% of the consumers were happy with their yogurt! Meritless cases like these clog our courts and keep the truly injured from getting their day in court.

I encourage you to take a look at the report, which can be found here.
