2007 Judicial Hellholes Report

Judicial Hellholes® 2008

The latest ranking of America's most unfair jurisdictions in which to be sued has been revealed in the American Tort Reform Foundation's Judicial Hellholes® 2008/2009 report. Read the full report (3 MB PDF) or start with the executive summary below.

Previous Hellholes reports are also available: Judicial Hellholes 2007, Judical Hellholes 2006, Judicial Hellholes 2005, Judicial Hellholes 2004, Judicial Hellholes 2003 and Judicial Hellholes 2002 report (1.2MB PDF).

Executive Summary

Judicial Hellholes are places where judges systematically apply laws and court procedures in an inequitable manner, generally against defendants in civil lawsuits. In this seventh annual report, ATRF shines its brightest spotlight on seven areas of the country that have developed reputations for uneven justice.

West Virginia
West Virginia reclaims the #1 ranking this year for its near perfect storm of anti-business rulings, massive lawsuits and cozy relationships between the personal injury bar, the state attorney general and some in the judiciary. The state's highest court has a history of plaintiff-biased decisions, paying damages to those who are not injured, allowing mass trials, permitting lawsuits outside the workers' compensation system, rejecting long-established legal principles, and welcoming plaintiffs' lawyers from other states to take advantage of its generous rulings. To make matters worse, West Virginia is one of only two states that do not guarantee a right to appeal a civil verdict, even if a multimillion-dollar award is clearly excessive under the law or the trial court violated proce- dural fairness by allowing a jury to decide punitive damages before it found a defendant legally responsible for a claim. There also may be no state with a closer alliance between the state attorney general and politically-connected personal injury lawyers. This alliance has wreaked havoc at the expense of civil justice.

South Florida
South Florida maintains its reputation for legally excessive awards and plaintiff-biased rulings that make it a launching pad for class actions, dubious claims and novel legal theories creating new types of lawsuits. This year South Florida was home to a record-breaking award in an asbestos case. And though medical malpractice claims may be coming down off their peak, the area is still home to some of the largest such awards. Not surprisingly, its doctors pay among the highest insurance premiums in the nation. It is also a place where professional plaintiffs patrol small business sites for tech- nical violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, hoping to gin up litigation. Broward County has recently seen more than its share of judicial misconduct allegations. So yet again, this hellhole has many problems.

Cook County, Illinois
Cook County, Illinois, with its reputation for hostility toward corporate defendants, has long been known as a receptive host for lawsuits. In past years, the Chicago area experienced a surge in asbestos claims, embraced class action lawsuits and became known for excessive awards. Cook County still hosts significantly more than its proportional share of lawsuits in the state, as its courts permit "forum shopping" whereby lawyers from other parts of the state or country can bring lawsuits that have little or no connection to Cook County. It was also a Cook County court that threw out a state law aimed at solving medical liability problems that had set physicians fleeing the state. At press time, the Illinois Supreme Court was still considering the appeal.

Atlantic County, New Jersey
Atlantic County, New Jersey, and the state known as the "nation's medicine cabinet," has become the destination of choice for those suing the pharmaceutical industry. Believe it or not, some of these cases are brought on behalf of people who do not even claim to have been harmed by taking a drug. Instead, lawyers are seeking massive payouts for anyone who merely purchased a drug. Other areas of the state have problems, too, such as particularly large personal injury awards in Monmouth County and an astounding appellate court ruling in a Cape May case holding restaurant and bar owners responsible for accidents caused by drunken patrons, even if those patrons didn't consume alcohol while at their estab- lishments. Such decisions are certainly bad for small businesses, but lawyers are doing all right: An advisory committee to the New Jersey Supreme Court found that a contingency fee lawyer may in some cases take as much as half of his or her client's recovery.

Montgomery & Macon Counties in Alabama
Montgomery & Macon Counties in Alabama this year moved up from their recent Watch List rankings thanks to legally excessive verdicts, controversial alliances among government officials and personal injury lawyers, and suspect court rulings. Montgomery County courts returned two of the most excessive verdicts against pharmaceutical companies in the country totaling almost a quarter-billion dollars. Alabama's attorney general outsourced lawsuits to trial lawyers who may be motivated more by their personal interests than by the public interest. Meanwhile, in nearby Macon County, two judges gave new meaning to the phrase "jackpot justice" in awarding a plaintiff 1,000 times the maximum payout of a gaming park's malfunctioning slot machine.

Los Angeles County, California
Los Angeles County, California, has returned to the ranks of Judicial Hellholes, in part, for allowing "shakedown" lawsuits brought primarily against small businesses under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and for otherwise hosting astonishingly excessive verdicts. The county long known as "the bank" has remained one of the most desirable places in the nation to file lawsuits. Los Angeles this year produced a startling number of large asbestos awards. And in one recent string of lawsuits stemming from a practical joke, just about everyone walked away with a payment.

Clark County, Nevada
Clark County, Nevada, lawyers recognize that they have a problem - and it isn't gambling or drinking. According to one recent allegation by the FBI in Las Vegas, plaintiffs' attorneys try to game the system in favor of their clients by contributing politically to the judges before whom they appear. Defense lawyers feel the scales of justice are tipped against them, as shown by one instance in which a court ordered a new trial when a defense lawyer had the audacity to mention frivolous lawsuits and individual responsibility in his closing argument. Meanwhile, courts do not appear to show the same concern when a personal injury lawyer exhorts jurors to "send a message" by returning a huge verdict. Many Clark County lawyers are also looking for a way to exceed a voter-passed limit on damages for pain and suffering in medical malpractice cases, which would cause more doctors to flee the state.

Watch List

Beyond the Judicial Hellholes, this report calls attention to several additional jurisdictions that also bear watching for suspicious or negative developments in litigation, histories of abuse, or laudable efforts to improve themselves. Watch List jurisdictions fall on the cusp - they may fall into the Hellholes abyss or rise to the promise of Equal Justice Under Law.

Misconduct Judge Timothy L. Blakely_MN Greylord

MN is getting as Bad as Chicago Judges re: GreylordMN Greylord - Google Search Greylord Judge corruption - Google Search
What ever happened to Judge Venne and Lawyer Doug Kelley?Judge Venne and Lawyer Doug Kelley MN - Google Search
Judge Timothy L. Blakely (

Misconduct? Judge referred people to a lawyer he owed money


Judge Timothy Blakely said he was eager to see difficult divorces settled out of court. So, he assigned case after case to a St. Paul mediator Blakely swore he could trust. There were two problems:

  • The attorney was his own.
  • He owed her six figures.

    The Goodhue County district judge stands accused of funneling 19 divorce cases to the law firm that handled his divorce in exchange for a steep reduction in his legal debt. He appeared Monday before a judicial fact-finding panel to fight allegations of misconduct.

    The "quid pro quo" arrangement allegedly helped him slice two-thirds — nearly $64,000 — off a legal bill of $108,000 left over from his divorce, according to attorneys for the Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards, which filed a complaint against him in August.

    In a November 2005 e-mail to attorney Christine Stroemer, Blakely said he was saddled with debts from his failed marriage and the six children he and his fiancee were raising together. He offered Stroemer the "lump sum" proceeds from the sale of his home as a compromise.

    His e-mail to Stroemer reads:

    "(My fiancee) and I are in a serious bind. ... A sizeable lump sum now may be preferable to very long-term payments. There is also very substantial past, and future, benefit to you from significant business referrals we have made."

    Doug Kelley, an attorney for the Board on Judicial Standards, said the judge later offered to include Stroemer in a database of trusted civil mncourts.gov)

  • correct?"

    Blakely responded: "I do. And I know right from wrong."

    The judge's former wife, Judith Blakely, alerted the Board on Judicial Standards to his alleged arrangement with Stroemer in April 2007.

    In letters and e-mails to Stroemer, Blakely said his ex-wife had declared bankruptcy, complicating his finances.

    Blakely, who has served as a judge in the First Judicial District since 1998, is chambered in Goodhue County and hears court cases throughout the seven-county district, including Dakota, Carver and Scott counties.

    Legal proceedings could continue into Wednesday. Attorneys for Blakely have said the Hennepin County attorney's office has reviewed the allegations and declined to press charges.

    Peppering the judge with questions, Kelley spent the morning walking Blakely through a chronology of his divorce, his mounting debts and the letters, phone calls and e-mails between Blakely and Stroemer.

    In an Oct. 1, 2007, letter to the board, Blakely said he did not believe the number of cases he assigned to Stroemer's firm increased after his divorce. For mediation, the firm had always been a popular option among judges in the district, the judge said.

    In the letter, he went on to regret some of the "stark" language in his e-mails to Stroemer and said his mention of "significant business referrals" in November 2005 was meant to describe the kind of referrals he made "regularly with friends and others who know that I am a judge (and) ask for the name of a lawyer who I think would do a good job for them."

    Blakely told Stroemer in a February 2006 e-mail that he had a possible offer on his house that would produce a net proceed of $30,000 or $31,000. He hoped that would settle his bill.

    "Wow, you are asking me to forego (sic) over $60,000 in earned fees," Stroemer e-mailed back, reluctantly accepting the compromise. "Nonetheless, it is my hope we continue a good relationship and that you continue to refer cases to me."

    Kelley told Blakely: "Judge, did it not make you uncomfortable that in the discussion of the compromise, right in the middle of the e-mail, she's discussing the referrals?"

    Said Blakely: "No. ... I remember getting this e-mail and thinking, thank God, it will be over."

    ELECT NONLAWYER JUDGES MINN. 221NW2nd 562 Scarrella Assoc. Justice

    EeKeep our Courts Fair
    Keep Our Courts Fair ELECT NON LAWYER JUDGES

    The time to act is now. Minnesota can take am immediate step to prevent the politicization of judicial elections. Merit selection, performance evaluation and retention elections will keep our judicial system focused on making fair and impartial decisions.

    This session, help us encourage the Legislature to submit a constitutional amendment to Minnesota voters to change the process for selecting and retaining judges. This will increase the accountability of our judicial system while protecting its impartiality, as well as respecting the rights of citizens to make the final retention decision. The time to act is now.


    Take Action

    Message Recipients

    Your State Senator(s)

    Your State Representative(s)

    Review the Message

    A sample letter appears below, but a message written in your own words will be the most effective.









    Thank for contacting your legislator on the impartial courts project. Your voice has helped put pressure on legislators to safeguard our historically fair and impartial courts from special interest influence by creating a "merit selection" and "retention election process."

    Your message was sent to:

    Senator Richard J. Cohen
    Representative Erin Murphy

    Judicial elections across the country are experiencing expensive partisan campaigns even in so called nonpartisan states like Minnesota. As a result of a recent Supreme Court case, Minnesota's historically fair and impartial courts could soon be up for sale because of large sums of special interest money in judicial campaigns.

    We can prevent this from happening in our state - now is the time to preserve the judicial impartiality Minnesotans expect from their judges. I urge you to support a constitutional amendment to change the process for selecting and retaining judges, increasing the accountability of our judicial system while protecting its impartiality and the rights of citizens to make the final retention decision informed by unbiased evaluation of each judges performance.
