The Issue

Currently, defendants must pay interest on judgments at a fixed rate of 9%, which is significantly higher than the market rate. This rate forces defendants to settle meritless lawsuits rather than risk paying the exorbitant interest rate.

The Solution

LRANY supports legislation which ties the rate of interest on judgments to the prevailing market interest rate.
