Reform works, and Texas is proof. In 2003, Texas was a judicial hellhole. Abusive lawsuits were out of control, and the state’s unfriendly legal climate was driving away businesses, jobs and doctors.
In the 10 years since, Texas passed some of the most comprehensive legal reform in the nation and the results have been spectacular. Texas is no longer a playground for personal injury lawyers; it’s a hot spot for job creation and economic growth. Texas has experienced a miracle, and legal reform is largely responsible.
