Philly Wins Again!

January 19, 2012

We think judicial hellhole rankings are titillating (although, as we all know, no matter what the jurisdiction is, there's no way of accounting for what a judge or jury might do).  And we have previously written on the <a href="http://www.wcmlaw.com/blog/Default.aspx?g=posts&amp;t=812">2011</a> and <a href="http://www.wcmlaw.com/blog/Default.aspx?g=posts&amp;t=71">2010</a> rankings.  This year we have good news for all you Philadelphia fans: Philadelphia wins again!  For the second year in a row, Philadelphia is the <a href="http://www.judicialhellholes.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Judicial-Hellholes-2011.pdf">worst jurisdiction</a> in the country in which to be a defendant.  But sadly, given the passage of <a href="http://www.wcmlaw.com/blog/Default.aspx?g=posts&amp;t=932">tort reform</a>, it seems possible that Philadelphia might fall from its vaunted perch.  Perhaps NY, which is # 3, can catch up?  Just like the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mets">Mets</a> say (in response to the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philadelphia_Phillies">Phillies</a>) -- there's always next year!
