Assemblyman Roger Niello Honored for Commitment to Balance and Fairness in the Civil Justice System
SACRAMENTO — The Civil Justice Association of California (CJAC) on Friday, October 3, will honor California Assemblyman Roger Niello (5th District) with a Civil Justice Leadership Award for his work during the 2007-08 legislative session.
“Assemblyman Niello has demonstrated a commitment to bring balance and fairness to our civil justice system that benefits consumers, taxpayers, and businesses of all kinds,” said CJAC President John H. Sullivan. “Californians are fortunate to have elected an Assemblyman who strives to promote reasonable reforms to cut excessive litigation, improving access to our courts.”
During this year’s legislative session, Niello carried a bill that would have strengthened laws against frivolous lawsuits. He has also hosted workshops to help educate small business owners on complying with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act in order to improve disability access and reduce lawsuits.
Assemblyman Niello’s district includes Carmichael, Citrus Heights, Folsom, Granite Bay, Sacramento, Arden Arcade, Fair Oaks, Natomas, North Highlands, and Orangevale.
The Civil Justice Association of California annually recognizes lawmakers whose commitment to balance and fairness in California’s civil justice system benefits consumers, taxpayers, and businesses.
