State Polling Shows Consumers are Worried about Lawsuit Abuse

Lawsuit abuse is an issue that affects all Americans. Through ridiculous lawsuits that clog our court system and close businesses’ doors, Americans witness the effects of lawsuit abuse across the country.

 

Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) stands with constituents in demanding for a fair civil justice system.

 

In September 2019, CALA ran a poll across CALA states – California, Illinois, Louisiana and Florida – to catch a glimpse of what citizens think.
