A recent study in the Baylor Law Review shows Texans use our courts responsibly.
The latest edition of our In Depth series looks at a recent study published in the Baylor Law Review that demonstrates Texans access our court responsibly. The authors went straight to those who know our courts the best — our judges — and asked them a series of questions, including whether Texans file baseless suits or if juries overcompensate victims. The answer was overwhelmingly “no,” undercutting the major assertions of so-called “tort reformers” who seek severe limitations on our legal rights.
This matters. When systems fail, we must preserve access to our justice system. When people mistakenly believe most lawsuits are meritless, consumers slowly lose the right to fight in court if something goes wrong. We appreciate Baylor studying the issue and setting the record straight.
Please take a few minutes to watch the video and then share it with your friends and family so they have the best information when it comes to the fight for their rights.
