Cook, Madison and St. Clair Counties together took the sixth spot on the American Tort Reform Association's "Judicial Hellholes" list, which ranks the most litigious and plaintiff-friendly regions in the United States. The report called Madison County the "Asbestos Litigation Capital," noting that 72 percent of civil cases filed in the county were asbestos-related--and only .05 percent of those lawsuits were filed by Madison County residents.
