Chamber Memo Shows Proposals For Major Changes To State Courts

Lead in text: 
The Journal-Record's M. Scott Carter reports on a plan by the State Chamber that might change the way Oklahoma selects its judges. The Chamber and some legislative leaders have been critical of the Oklahoma Supreme Court's ruling that a law changing the way lawsuits are filed and litigated in the state is unconstitutional.
A series of recommendations designed to make major changes in Oklahoma's judicial and tort systems will be reviewed by board members of the State Chamber of Oklahoma in December. The recommendations could then become part of the organization's 2014 legislative agenda, documents obtained by The Journal Record show.
