2023 Florida Business Forum: Making the Business Community’s Case for Tort Reform

Hosted by the state’s leading business associations, the focus of the 2023 Florida Business Forum is “Making the Business Community’s Case for Tort Reform.” Industry representatives, lawmakers and others will take part in panels that will discuss key reforms in the civil justice system.For years, Florida has been identified as an outlier on civil justice. Often referred to as a “judicial hellhole,” the status of the state’s tort climate is a significant challenge to Florida’s businesses.As we begin to focus on the 2023 Session, it is important to have a serious conversation about what the Legislature can do to move Florida from “hellhole” status to having a climate that supports the employers and economic drivers upon which the state depends.
