It's time to act on Justice Killers.

Each year, the corporate tort machine introduces scads of bills intended to undercut the rights of California consumers. We call them “Justice Killers.” We need you to contact your legislators right now to help us stop these bad bills.

Here is the full list of Justice Killers:

CAPS FOR CALTRANS CLAIMS
AB 965 (Kiley): Limits noneconomic damages against Caltrans to $250,000. Further limits damages by eliminating joint-and-several liability for the department. Undercuts the types of cases that have prodded Caltrans to improve dangerous highway conditions and practices.

LIMITS ON WAGE THEFT SUITS 
AB 281 (Salas), AB 945 (Melendez), AB 1429 (Fong), AB 1045 (Flora), and AB 1430 (Fong): All five bills limit claims brought under the Private Attorney General Act.

DELAYING JUSTICE FOR ASBESTOS VICTIMS
AB 1056 (Kiley): Sponsored by the Civil Justice Association of California (CJAC), this measure limits claims for asbestos victims. Introduced many times before, this bill is the offspring of a national effort led by the billionaire Koch brothers, whose corporate holdings include firms that market asbestos products.

CONTINGENCY FEES
AB 1146 (Flora): Also sponsored by CJAC, AB 1146 limits the use of contingency fee agreements between attorneys and public entities.

Step 4: Once you finish your calls, make a contribution to help the Consumer Attorneys of Calfornia fight for justice in California!
