Chamber Releases 2010 Lawsuit Climate Survey

On Monday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for Legal Reform ("ILR") released its annual survey (pdf) "ranking the states with the best and worst legal climates in the country."

At the bottom this year are West Virginia (50th), Louisiana (49th), Mississippi (48th), Alabama (47th) and California (46th).

The "best legal climates" are in Delaware (1st), North Dakota (2nd), Nebraska (3rd), Indiana (4th), and Iowa (5th).

The ILR has an interactive map as well as a press release summary available as well.  The National Law Journal also covers the story.
