Litigation Finance in Context of WJP Rankings

Interesting article from The Hill discussing litigation finance in the context of the World Justice Project placing the U.S. 65th in its ranking of affordability and accessibility to its legal system.

Why, in the United States, where we value equality and fairness, do we fail so miserably at providing access to justice for those who feel that they have been wronged?

One plausible explanation is the extreme economic imbalance that exists in America’s judicial system, favoring parties with the deepest pockets. This is truer than ever in the civil context, where litigation has become an enormously expensive proposition for businesses and individuals without substantial financial resources.
