Survey Gives Iowa Judges, Juries High Marks for Fairness

Des Moines, March 30, 2006 - A national survey assessing the litigation environment of all 50 states rates Iowa among the top five states for overall legal fairness.  The survey, which was conducted for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, also gives Iowa judges high marks for impartiality and competence and rates Iowa juries high for predictability and fairness. 

“I want to applaud each and every Iowan who answers the call for jury service,” said Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Louis Lavorato.  “They take time away from their jobs and families to perform a valuable public service.  Their contribution is truly gratifying.”

“Our judiciary’s high standing is primarily due to Iowa’s merit process for selecting judges,” said Chief Justice Lavorato.  “Because merit selection emphasizes professional qualifications above all else, Iowa judges possess the qualities most valued in judges—fairness, integrity, legal excellence, and diligence.”

According to the survey, Iowa ranks in the top five states for nine of the twelve key elements making up the overall rating, including: overall treatment of tort and contract litigation, treatment of class action suits and mass consolidation suits, punitive damages, discovery, non-economic damages, judges’ impartiality, judges’ competence, juries’ predictability, and juries’ fairness.

The poll, conducted by Harris Interactive Inc., is based upon a nation-wide survey of 1400 corporate attorneys.  This is the fifth consecutive year of high ratings for Iowa’s judges, juries, and overall legal fairness.

This is what I call a "Controlled Study" by surveying specific target such as attorneys rather than random citizens.

Iowa ranks in the top five states???  Whoa, I guess they didn't ask anyone I know to fill out that survey.

One of the things that I see is if the  State of Iowa is in the top five    how bad is it in others States.  and is this one of the reasons that custodial parent move to other states so they can gain complete control(knowing other states won't for the most part listen to another states ruling)   Just wondering?

Fairness???  As long as fair means denying children both parents since all US courts act like mother only custody is "settled law."  Or, do they mean Iowa judges don't accept bribes as much as NY or CA?  Wrong focus for what really matters on all accounts.

But a nice little feather for Iowa courts that continue to destroy lives while wearing blinders.

The survey does not mean much due to the controlled variables and controlled participants like jmposts suggests.  Like Ken, I think it is an award that will go on some judges mantel and encourages judges to continue to destroy lives.

Having been through the system in IL, I have to admit Iowa has them beat by a large margin, but that is not saying much for Iowa and saying a lot about the other states. Somthing different needs to be done and done now.

some crusty jackoff should not be deciding what's in the best interests of our children and we all know what a joke social services are.

As Bryan has been stating in other postings  a Three Strike Bill is one way to force this issue.  the biggest problem is getting a legislator to sponsor this bill.  One of the ways that I can see to get this done is to prove that the judges don't always listen to the law that our Reps and Senators are creating . I think that as a Law maker  I would expect the Judges to enforce the Laws that are Written
