Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (CALA) is a grassroots movement of people concerned that lawsuit abuse hurts Texas families and Texas employers and can ultimately cost jobs and limit access to all types of goods and services.  With more than 25,000 supporters, CALA is a community-based movement dedicated to educating the public about the cost and consequences of lawsuit abuse, challenging those who abuse our legal system, and returning common sense and fairness to our courts.

Launched in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley in 1990, the CALA movement has spread throughout the state, with chapters in East Texas, Central Texas, Corpus Christi, as well as the Valley, and across the country.

Our ultimate goal is to make junk lawsuits unprofitable so that our courts are available for Texans who really need them.
