Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Victory Receives ILR’s Judicial Leadership Achievement Award

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Jeffrey P. Victory today received the 2014 Judicial Leadership Achievement Award at the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s (ILR) 15th Annual Legal Reform Summit.


“We are excited to honor Justice Victory with our Judicial Leadership Achievement Award,” said Lisa A. Rickard, president of ILR. “Justice Victory has proven himself to be a strong and consistent leader of the Louisiana Supreme Court.”


In particular, ILR applauded the strict constructionism with which Justice Victory approaches each case before him, and recognized his thoughtful and well-reasoned written opinions. Justice Victory, who will retire at the end of this year, has served as a member of the Louisiana Supreme Court since 1995. Over his 19 years on the court, he has authored opinions curbing lawsuit abuses.


The Annual Legal Reform Awards honor individuals and organizations whose outstanding work has contributed to reforming America’s civil justice system.


ILR seeks to promote civil justice reform through legislative, political, judicial, and educational activities at the national, state, and local levels.


For more information contact Justin Hakes with the Institute for Legal Reform at 202-463-3156.
