Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) is a grassroots movement of people concerned that lawsuit abuse hurts Texas families and Texas employers and can ultimately cost jobs and limit access to all types of goods and services. CALA is a community-based movement dedicated to educating the public about the cost and consequences of lawsuit abuse, challenging those who abuse our legal system, and returning common sense and fairness to our courts.
Launched in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley in 1990, the CALA movement has spread throughout the state, with chapters in East Texas, Central Texas, Corpus Christi, and across the country.
Lawsuit abuse affects CITIZENS us all by reducing access to health care, driving up the cost of consumer goods, and limiting job creation. We pay more for everyday products and services because of junk lawsuits. Employers look closely at a state’s legal climate when choosing a location to expand or relocate. When it comes to lawsuit abuse, we all pay – and we all lose.
Rio Grande Valley Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse is dedicated to educating Valley citizens about the cost and consequences of lawsuit abuse, challenging those who abuse our legal system, and returning common sense and fairness to our courts. We work closely with the statewide grassroots campaign Texans Against Lawsuit Abuse.
