Bill Increasing Penalties for Frivolous Lawsuits Signed Into Law by Governor Brown

Bill Increasing Penalties for Frivolous Lawsuits Signed Into Law by Governor Brown

On Thursday, September 18, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assemblyman Ken Cooley’s AB 2494 to curb frivolous litigation tactics.

Prior to 1995, California law provided that litigants subjected to bad-faith and unmeritorious tactics could seek sanctions in the form of attorney’s fees. While invoking this provision did occur and promoted fairness in tactics, it was rare because a very high burden of proof is required to establish bad-faith.

"CMTA appreciates Ken's work on this bill - it demonstrates his commitment to reform the difficult regulatory climate in California,” said Jack Stewart, President of California Manufacturers and Technology Association. “He understands that we need to find ways to make regulations less burdensome and reduce compliance costs such as the frivolous litigation this bill will discourage."
