PA Coalition for Civil Justice Reform’s New Website
June 08, 2017
The Pennsylvania Coalition for Civil Justice Reform, the statewide organization working to improve the commonwealth’s legal liability climate, today launched its new website.
This new online presence will assist the coalition in advocating for common sense reforms to Pennsylvania’s civil justice system.
According to the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform, Pennsylvania’s legal climate lags behind nearly 40 other states. In addition, recent reports by the American Tort Reform Association placed the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, and Allegheny County courts as being on its Judicial Hellhole Watch List.
The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) is a founding member of the coalition. Former Delaware Valley Healthcare Council of HAP Executive Curt Schroder is the group’s executive director.
With the coalition, HAP joins a leading group of key business, health care, and insurance communities working to bring fairness to Pennsylvania’s courts by:
- Raising awareness of civil justice issues
- Advocating for legal reform
The new website will be a valuable resource to hospitals, physicians, and other health care practitioners as they seek to navigate key liability matters.
For additional information, please contact Scott Bishop, HAP’s senior vice president, legislative advocacy.
