Assemblywoman Anna Caballero Honored with Civil Justice Leadership Award
SACRAMENTO — The Civil Justice Association of California (CJAC) will on Wednesday, Oct. 8, honor State Assemblywoman Anna M. Caballero (28th District) with a Civil Justice Leadership Award for her work in the 2007-08 legislative session.
“I want to thank CJAC for presenting me with this award, and for their support and vote of confidence,” Assemblywoman Caballero said. “I have great respect for the work they do and I appreciate this recognition.”
During the legislative session, Assemblywoman Caballero has supported bills that would protect businesses or individuals who volunteer to help in an emergency, authorize additional judges in California, and increase access for people with disabilities while reducing excessive litigation against businesses.
“Anna Caballero’s constituents and all Californians are lucky to have an assemblywoman with enthusiasm, courage, and common sense working for them in Sacramento to support the interests of citizens, consumers, businesses, and good Samaritans, and ease the burden on our courts,” said John H. Sullivan, CJAC’s President.
Assemblywoman Caballero was elected to serve the 28th Assembly District in November 2006. The district consists of San Benito county, and portions of Monterey, Santa Cruz, and Santa Clara counties.
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 of all kinds.
