The Chamber's Institute for Legal Reform has released the 2012 Lawsuit Climate Report. The report surveys in-house general counsel, and senior attorneys at companies with at least $100 million in annual revenues about their perceptions of the states' tort systems. According to the report, "[t]he worst jurisdiction was Chicago/Cook County, Illinois (17%), followed by Los Angeles, California (16%), the state of California in general (9%), San Francisco, California (9%), and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (8%)."
