San Diego County Citizens
Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) is a 501 (c) 6 non-profit,
non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to reform
of our civil justice system. Formed in 1994 and now with
more than 3,000 supporters, CALA's mission is to educate
the public about the impact of lawsuit abuse on consumers
and California's economy, thereby fostering a climate for
change that begins at the local level. Our goal is to
bring balance, fairness, responsibility and restraint to
our legal system through public awareness and grassroots
We believe that
civil justice reform has not been adequately addressed by
our lawmakers due to the influence of special interest
groups on the legislative process. We feel the public
must become engaged in the debate over legal reform
before California can solve its lawsuit crisis.

Our message is
simple -- the California court system is out of control.
It both invites and rewards abuse. Lawsuit abuse
threatens the very balance the court system was designed
to achieve and prevents legitimate victims from being
fairly compensated in a timely manner. When people abuse
the system, we all pay and we all lose. As such, we have
a personal responsibility to fix the problem; to prevent
the abuse while protecting one's access to the courts.
CALA's desire is to see justice restored where both
parties get even handed treatment, no more no less.
Here's what you can
do to help stop lawsuit abuse:
- When called,
don't make excuses -- serve on a jury.
- Talk before you
fight. Try mediation or arbitration to resolve
disputes. Conflicts are inevitable in our
society, but lawsuits should be the last resort.

often in our society, people look for an outside
culprit to blame when something bad happens to
them, even if they are personally negligent.
- Report barratry
or "ambulance chasing" -- the illegal
solicitation of clients by attorneys. It's
against the law.
