Survey Ranks California's Litigation Climate Among Worst in the Nation, Again.

We're 46th! According to this survey conducted by the US Chamber of Commerce's Institute for Litigation Reform, California's litigation climate ranks 46th in the nation in the eyes of corporate counsel and executives. That's down from 44th in 2008, the last time the survey was conducted. The same survey lists Los Angeles County as the second worst venue in the nation. Unlike the 2008 survey, this year's survey does not include a separate ranking for each state on the issue of punitive damages.
