Florida Gets Off ATRA’s Judicial Hellhole List

The American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) released its annual Judicial Hellholes report this week and Florida is no longer listed on it.

“Florida has long been a top five judicial hellhole, but steadily improved under Governor Ron DeSantis’ leadership, with ATRA upgrading Florida to the ‘watch list’ in 2020,” said William Large, the president of the Florida Justice Reform Institute. “Now, thanks to the governor’s commitment and the leadership of Senate President Kathleen Passidomo and House Speaker Paul Renner, Florida has finally come off the Judicial Hellholes report completely.”

ATRA based their decision on both the steady improvement in Florida’s legal climate during DeSantis’s tenure and legislation passed this year, particularly House Bill 837, Senate Bill 360, and House Bill 1205.

“2023 will be remembered as a watershed year for civil justice reform in Florida,” added Large. “Finally, with the governor’s insistence, the Florida Legislature passed high-profile reform after reform, including House Bill 837, a comprehensive, transformational bill full of long-time FJRI priorities. We applaud Florida’s elected leadership for this tremendous accomplishment.”
