Tort reform group crowns Cook County fifth worst in nation
A national tort-reform watchdog group calls Cook County fifth worst in the nation for “unfair and unbalanced” awards to plaintiffs in civil cases.
But noted Chicago personal injury lawyer Thomas Demetrio spoke only partially tongue in cheek when he called the ranking by The American Tort Reform Association “a badge of honor” for Cook County Circuit Court.
The tort reform advocacy group’s ninth annual “Judicial Hellholes” report, to be released today, specifically cites the Cook County Circuit Court judgment striking down the Illinois General Assembly’s attempt to limit damages for pain and suffering in medical liability cases a decision affirmed by the Illinois Supreme Court.
