Louisiana unfortunately is a perpetual fixture on the American Tort Reform Foundation’s “Judicial Hellholes” list, which identifies those states with civil justice systems that allow lawsuit abuse to flourish. As frivolous lawsuits proliferate, the costs associated with these abuses contribute to lost jobs, higher insurance rates and lower income for everyday citizens. In the newly released 2019-2020 report, Louisiana was ranked the fourth-worst judicial hellhole in the country, rising a spot from last year’s No. 5 ranking.
