Statement on Rejection of Propositions 45, 46

Fighting Lawsuit Abuse Healthcare MICRA PIL Influence

SACRAMENTO – In response to the announcement that California voters rejected Propositions 45 and 46, California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) released the following statement from CALA Executive Director Tom Scott:

“Californians stepped up and did their part to fight lawsuit abuse in California by voting to reject Propositions 45 and 46. Trial lawyers had one goal in mind when with these initiatives: they wanted to file more lawsuits and make more money doing it.

“Trial lawyers sponsored Proposition 45 with the hopes of making millions of dollars in legal fees by filing abusive lawsuits, and Proposition 46 would have created even more lawsuit abuse in California by increasing their payouts in medical lawsuits.

“California is known as the nation’s worst “Judicial Hellhole,” and the failure of Propositions 45 and 46 demonstrates voters have had enough of the trial lawyers’ efforts to create even more lawsuit abuse in California.”

California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about the negative effects of lawsuit abuse and challenging those who abuse our legal system for personal gain.
