The Partnership for Commonsense Justice (PCJ) was founded in 2006 with a mission to improve Kentucky’s civil justice system through policy reforms that fairly limit legal liability for businesses and caregivers while ensuring justice is delivered to victims and their families.
Our members include a wide range of associations, businesses, and health care industry organizations—all of which recognize the importance of creating a more balanced and efficient civil justice system to improve Kentucky’s competitiveness with other states.
While PCJ has proudly led the way in advocating for meaningful policy improvements over the years, we have also seen many needed reforms perish at the hands of a hostile judicial branch which too often disregards the will of Kentucky’s elected leaders and voters. As a result, PCJ is now refocusing its efforts to serve as a true watchdog on the courts and a champion for judicial candidates who will adhere to the law and smartly limit legal liability in the Commonwealth.
Kentucky’s Liability Climate
Kentucky’s legal liability climate currently ranks among the worst in the nation, according to the US Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform’s 2017 Lawsuit Climate survey.
Kentucky must reform its legal liability system—one that currently gives personal injury lawyers the upper hand and encourages too many meritless lawsuits—if we want to stay competitive and provide a more positive environment for business, health care, and citizens like you.
