Atlantic County , New Jersey joins list of "Judicial Hellholes" for defendants.


December 26, 2007 at 10:37:56 PM

The Atlantic County Superior Court in New Jersey has joined a list of courts that the American Tort Reform Foundation finds the least favorable for lawsuit defendants in plaintiff's tort claims. It joins Clark County , Nevada as a newcomer to the " judicial hellhole" list prepared by the foundation. Atlantic County was found to be plaintiff friendly for mass tort claims against New Jersey's numerous pharmaceutical companies, in large part due to the handling of Vioxx related lawsuits which have been tried against Merck & Co.
