California No. 1 ‘Judicial Hellhole,’ national lawsuit payments $429B, 2.3 percent GDP

America is getting crushed by courts that have opened the door to lawsuits by adopting fake law, “junk science,” and even litigation “tourism,” with payments reaching $429 billion, or 2.3 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product, according to a remarkable new report.

California courts top the list from the American Tort Reform Association, and it is expected to get worse as lawyers feast on on a new data privacy law.

“The California motto, ‘Eureka,’ is said to refer to the discovery of gold. Today, plaintiff's lawyers are California’s prospectors, searching for new theories of liability. Some have struck it rich,” said the report, 2018-2019 Judicial Hellholes.

California is one of those states that allows citizens to sue businesses and individuals FOR the state and collect damages. It's like buying lottery tickets with a 50% or better chance of winning.
