W.Va. a judicial hellhole? Hell no, study says

By Scott Finn 

Earlier this month, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce named West Virginia its fourth-worst “judicial hellholes” in America – the places it says where the courts are most unfair. Last year, West Virginia topped the list.

But a new study by two West Virginia University professors disputes the Chamber’s claims. It says the number of tort cases are actually declining, and the state’s judges don’t see an increase in frivolous lawsuits. 

Reporter Scott Finn interviewed one of the study’s authors, WVU Professor John Kilwein.
