Tom Scott, Executive Director for California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse, had a letter-to-the-editor printed in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat raising concerns about recent litigation settlements and the cost to the City of Petaluma.
In his letter, he said:
"If the litigants are genuinely concerned with the community’s interest, they should donate the entire award to a worthy cause such as the annual Veterans Day Parade, or Fourth of July celebration that is continually threatened by cuts to the city’s budget. They should not use it to finance their next lawsuit."
