If someone breaks into your house and injures themselves, they can sue you – we’re working to change that.

A party only 1% at fault can be forced to pay 100% of a judgment, encouraging lawsuit abuse – we’re working to change that.

The LRANY Mission
The Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York (LRANY) is a broad based coalition of hardworking New Yorkers, large and small business groups, and medical professionals who are committed to changing New York’s burdensome and expensive legal system to help create more jobs and energize our economy.
Unfortunately for average New Yorkers, the powerful lawyer lobby has helped institute one of the nation’s worst legal systems in our state, contributing enormously to our high property taxes, reduced access to health care and increasing costs of doing business here. The failure of our elected officials to address these issues has made the revitalization of New York’s economy even more difficult.
Join us in the fight to change New York by fixing our broken legal system!
