We think judicial hellhole rankings are titillating (although, as we all know, no matter what the jurisdiction is, there’s no way of accounting for what a judge or jury might do). And we have previously written on the 2011 and 2010 rankings. This year we have good news for all you Philadelphia fans: Philadelphia wins again! For the second year in a row, Philadelphia is the worst jurisdiction in the country in which to be a defendant. But sadly, given the passage of tort reform, it seems possible that Philadelphia might fall from its vaunted perch. Perhaps NY, which is # 3, can catch up? Just like the Mets say (in response to the Phillies) — there’s always next year!
