California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) is joining small business owners in a campaign called â€śSmall Business Summerâ€ť to highlight how lawsuit abuse hurts the economy. They are speaking out during a conference of plaintiffsâ€™ lawyers in San Francisco stressing the cost of abusive lawsuits and their impact on consumers.
David Houston, co-chair of CALA, knows firsthand how lawsuit abuse can hurt business, job creation and consumers.
EVery year, An American Family of four pays more than thirty-two-hundred dollars in what we call a â€śLawsuit Taxâ€ť to cover the cost of lawsuits. I OWN A CHAIN of Restaurants, and Businesses like mine are an easy target for abusive lawsuits. So instead of creating jobs Iâ€™M forced to spend money fighting lawyers who are looking for new ways to take advantage of small business owners.
