  • U.S. Chamber Denounces Oklahoma Supreme Court Ruling Voiding State's Landmark Legal Reform Law
June 06, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Lisa A. Rickard, president of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR), made the following statement denouncing the Oklahoma Supreme Court’s ruling this week striking down the state’s landmark 2009 legal reform law.

"The Oklahoma Supreme Court’s ruling invalidating the state’s bipartisan landmark legal reform law from 2009 is deeply troubling. 

"Despite the leadership and commitment of the governor and the state legislature to improve Oklahoma's legal climate, a handful of unelected officials have defied the will of the people in negating this law.   “We will work with in-state allies, including the Oklahoma State Chamber, to address this misguided ruling.”
