CJAC Releases 2021 Legislator Scorecard
CJAC has released its second annual Balance Scorecard for the 2021 legislative year, which evaluates legislators and their efforts to promote a fair, balanced civil justice system – placing them in the top or bottom half of all California legislators.
The Balance Scorecard analyzes legislators’ votes and related efforts on CJAC priority bills that promote or impede balanced civil liability policies, including bills that create unwarranted liability expansions, frivolous litigation, or private rights of action (PRAs).
In 2021, CJAC looked at votes on 18 key bills that unreasonably expanded liability for a variety of employers, from mobility device manufacturers to businesses using online platforms. Six of the bills were CJAC Triple Threat bills and seven of the bills created new PRAs or expanded existing ones.
