Legal and judiciary

IFAI is only concerned that the state and federal legal systems are fair and balanced. Because of the alarmingly high cost of the US legal system, reform is needed to restore balance, apply reason and sound science, discourage frivolous claims and place appropriate limits on damages and liability.

IFAI supports:

  • The protection of private property rights
  • The creation of a business court which specializes in hearing business disputes
  • Enhancements to the civil justice system such as revisions to laws related to wrongful death, nuisance and procedural rules
  • Development of balanced tort reform including:
    • Statute of limitations
    • Product liability
    • Limits on class actions
    • Sanctions for frivolous claims
    • Alternative dispute resolution
