Small Business Owners Speak to Legislators about Lawsuit Abuse

| April 3, 2023 | 0 Comments

This past March, small business owners from throughout California traveled to the State Capital to share their personal stories of lawsuit abuse with legislators who serve on both the Senate and Assembly Judiciary Committees.  They took time from their busy schedules to help promote balance for California’s civil justice system. Their compelling accounts ranged from how unwarranted ADA, PAGA and Prop 65 suits target businesses like theirs.

Californians Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) serves as a watchdog to challenge the abuse of our civil justice system and engages the public and media to deliver the message that lawsuit abuse exists in California and that all Californians are paying the price. 

According to Victor Gomez, executive director, Californians Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA), “There are many new legislators in Sacramento now.  Many had no idea of the burdens businesses face when it comes to unwarranted lawsuits.  The newly elected legislators had a chance to hear from real people who experienced abusive American with Disabilities Act shakedown lawsuits, Private Attorney General Act lawsuits and Proposition 65 suits.  Nothing can replace the emotion of seeing a person as they tell their story of how profoundly it has impacted their businesses and jobs they create.”

Small business owners engage with legislators who serve on both the Senate and Assembly Judiciary Committees, to educate them on the seriousness of lawsuit abuse.
