Help stop lawsuit abuse

January 14, 2012

Editor:

Over the years, West Virginia has lost a lot to lawsuit abuse. Our state courts are often ranked last for legal fairness, and West Virginia has carried the unfortunate designation of a "judicial hellhole" for nearly a decade now.

Outrageous instances of "jackpot justice" and personal injury greed have driven thousands of jobs out of state. West Virginia's lack of a meaningful right of appeal alone has directly cost the state hundreds of jobs and more than $25 million in investment.

Frivolous lawsuit filings cost our school systems precious tax dollars, and have even jeopardized our parks and playgrounds. And a recent $91.5 million nursing care verdict could significantly impact long-term care for West Virginia seniors.

West Virginia Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse encourages local residents to join the fight against lawsuit abuse. With the support of more than 30,000 West Virginia households, West Virginia Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse is working to educate the public on the negative impact that lawsuit abuse has on our everyday lives.

West Virginia courts should be used for justice, not greed. Together we can put a stop to lawsuit abuse, before we lose too much. Please visit www.wvcala.org today to find out how you can help.
