With a new Democratic Administration at the helm going into 2011, there was great uncertainty over what this Legislature and Governor would do after six years of a Republican Administration.

By Todd Roberson on 08/09/2011 @ 11:00 AM

Tags: Attorneys Fees, Plaintiffs Lawyers

Today CJAC sent a public records request to the Orange County District Attorney's office regarding the fee agreement it entered into with the Robinson, Calcagnie & Robinson law firm (a plaintiffs' attorneys firm) to prosecute the unintended acceleration claims against Toyota. The Orange County Register previously filed a public records request over this contract, which the D.A.'s office rejected in March of 2010. CJAC's request, which you can read here, explains why we disagree with the D.A.'s claim that the contract does not have to be released to the public.
