There is another side to the story: ex parte communication to judges and/or their law clerks by elected officials, paid for by parties to litigation, for the purpose to put pressure on the judge to rule against the non-payor. The practice is widespread in the U.S. and has been decribed in BAYES' THEOREM, how organized crime infiltrates Congress, by Anonymous Anonymous. I got it at Amazon. Thus, the hell holes for plaintiffs are the Middle District of Florida and the Southern District of New York.

Why is it that major corporations, with deep resources and in-house counsel and law departments are so unable to find competent representation in the courts?

Tort reform should be moot, unless the law and the facts are against them regardless of their loawyers. Maybe nonstop lying and professional violations, as from the tobacco companies, influence ALL business litigation. They made their record and repuation, now they don't want to live with it.

Besides the real money and bulk of cases are business on business.

If you think Philadelphia is bad for corporations, try being a Black man in the criminal courts in Philadelphia. Judicial "Hellhole"?; try "Plantation."
