Groups Release Study Supporting the Need for Tort Reform in Illinois

From the Union League Club of Chicago:  Members of the Illinois Civil Justice League, release details of a study that they claim lays out the case for reforming the way lawsuits are brought in Illinois.

The speakers argue Illinois politics are tainted toward supporting Trial Lawyers, due to the millions in political donations given by the Trial Bar to political candidates.   They claim the excessive cost of lawsuits in Illinois contributes to the anti-business environment in the state that depresses job creation and a healthy economy, and causes medical costs to be higher.
