‘Judicial Hellholes’ Report Highlights Need for Reform in GA

Date: December 05, 2023

'The legal climate in Georgia continues to be a major concern and cost to small businesses'

NFIB State Director Hunter Loggins says the American Tort Reform Foundation’s latest Judicial Hellholes report highlights the need for legislative action to balance the scale of justice in Georgia.

“The legal climate in Georgia continues to be a major concern and cost to small businesses,” Loggins said. “The ATRA report highlights many of those concerns and challenges.  We are encouraged that this is a priority of Governor Kemp and look forward to working with the Governor and legislative leaders to address this important issue in the upcoming legislative session.

“The cost of defending itself against even one frivolous claim can be enough to put a small business out of business. Our members look forward to working with their state senators and representatives to find a legislative solution when the General Assembly gavels into session next month,” Loggins said.

The American Tort Reform Foundation said Georgia tied for No. 1 with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas because of excessive nuclear verdicts, expanded premises liability, courts allowing phantom damages, and troubling decisions by the Georgia Supreme Court, including opening the doors to out-of-state lawsuits.
