Getting sued is a big problem for businesses in Missouri. According to ILR's recent study, the state has one of the nation’s worst legal climates.
While the legal climate isn’t a day-to-day worry for many companies, every single Missourian is being harmed by the current system; according to an op-ed that ran in the St. Louis Business Journal.
To try and help with this problem, leadership in the Missouri General Assembly has prioritized Senate Bill 591. If passed, the bill will help to address Missouri’s out-of-control punitive damages system.
