The most recent U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform state liability system survey identifies those jurisdictions deemed the worst from the perspective of a corporate litigant, including Illinois, California, Mississippi, Louisiana, and West Virginia. The ranking study’s participants included “a national sample of 1,125 in-house general counsel, senior litigators or attorneys, and other senior executives who indicated that they are knowledgeable about litigation matters at companies with at least $100 million in annual revenues.” Some 70 percent of respondents apparently indicated that a state’s litigation environment “is likely to impact important business decisions,” such as where to locate and do business.
