Comments: I'm So Lucky

The overwhelming majority of judges, especially at the state level where they often face election, are unwilling to hold lawyers accountable for blatantly unethical forum shopping. Remember, judges are lawyers, so they're inclined to defend their brethren from the grumblings of mere laymen like us. Until you either end the professional bar's monopoly over the practice of law or start holding judges accountable for allowing their courts to be abused, the present system will continue.

That 'profession' has the intent of being a cost center for all human interaction. It's just about money.
