How These Ratings Were Determined
These ratings are based on an examination of each judge’s opinions, and only include cases where there is a difference of opinion between judges on the same case. This means they’re using the same law on the same set of facts. The only difference is their view of the law and what it means. The evaluations assess each judge’s record in comparison to the records of other judges on the court, in cases that involve civil liability creation and expansion – or restraint. These cases are the ones that increase your insurance costs.
Similar evaluations have been completed in 17 other states. The full report is available for anyone to view at the Oklahoma Civil Justice Council’s website, www.okciviljustice.com.
