Come to Iowa – We won’t sue you

. . . or if we do, we will not get any money. At least according to the annual assessment of state liability systems conducted by Harris Interactive. The assessment ranked Iowa’s legal climate No. 4 in the country (Delaware was #1). Rankings are based upon in-house general counsel and senior corporate litigators’ assessment of how fair and balanced each state’s court system is.

While this is great news for Iowa patent attorneys, my personal injury attorney buddies might not see things quite the same way. The study concludes that low ranking states like Illinois must legislate legal reform to attract new business and increase employment. You can read the whole survey here.

Thanks to Adam Steen for the pointer.
