Texas Judges Agree, Texans Are Accessing Courts Responsibly and Jury Trial Awards are Very Fair.

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.

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.

Laws In Texas is a blog about the Financial Crisis and how the banks and government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas and relying on a system of #FakeDocs and post-crisis legal precedents, specially created by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to foreclose on homeowners around this great State. We are not lawyers. We do not offer legal advice. We are citizens of the State of Texas who have spent a decade in the court system in Texas and have been party to during this period to the good, the bad and the very ugly.
