"Judicial Hellholes" Agree To Replace Courts With Dunking Ponds
Category: In Your Face
The meticulously fair and balanced American Tort Reform Association has just released "Judicial Hellholes 2005" and its benefits are already rolling in. Two top hellholes have abolished their civil court system and substituted dunking ponds. Three other holes have announced plans to replace human jurors with roboraptors, which should be more readily available after Christmas. Fifteen of the top 25 hellholes have agreed with the position of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and will be leveling their courthouses within 90 days.
Thank you, Chamber of Commerce, for helping America get its system of justice in order.
Report Spotlights Need for Reform in Jackpot Jurisdictions WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) today welcomed the American Tort Reform Association’s (ATRA) release of its new report, “Judicial Hellholes 2005,” which designated six jurisdictions as “judicial hellholes.” “This report is further evidence that the legal system in some states is badly broken,” said Lisa A. Rickard, president of ILR. “The need to make judicial and legislative changes that will level the playing field in problem states has never been greater.”
And, thank you, H. Monroe of The Monroe Doctrine, for making these hellholes see the light.

According to a press release from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the American Tort Reform Association has released a new report, "Judicial Hellholes 2005." The report highlights court jurisdictions that are notable for providing inordinately high jury awards.
The report, based on a survey of ATRA’s membership, jointly named the Rio Grande Valley and Gulf Coast regions of Texas the number one judicial hellhole, thanks in large part to million dollar jury verdicts and trial court rulings.
“The number one ranking of two south Texas regions demonstrates that even when a state passes comprehensive tort reform – as Texas did in 2003 – lawsuit abuse may persist if the new laws are not applied as intended,” continued Rickard.
