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."

West Nile virus poses special September threat

West Nile virus poses special September threat


SACRAMENTO - The West Nile virus continues to be a problem throughout California with more than twice the number of human cases compared to same time last year.

All month, public health officials have focused on preventive spraying across the region to combat the West Nile virus. One recent target was Oki Park, near Rosemont. That was good news for those gathered at the park Saturday afternoon, especially for Lyn Piegaro who was diagnosed with West Nile virus several years ago.

"It's debilitating. It's very hard, and I'm guessing for the kids and older people it's even worse, which is why I'm very happy that they spray," Piegaro said.

The website FIGHTtheBITE.net shows recently sprayed areas like the section of the American River just north of Oki Park.

Stand Down helping younger homeless veterans


Many local veterans were busy on this 9/11 anniversary getting things ready for Sacramento County's annual Stand Down.

Stand Down takes homeless vets off the streets for the weekend and provides resources to help them get back on their feet.

"We bring them in, get them meals, medical, dental, vision services," said Randy Smith, president of Sacramento Stand Down Association.

The event is in its 23rd year and is credited with saving the lives of those who sacrificed their own in the battlefield.

"Last year, three vets that were in our line coming in an intake the beginning morning literally had to be rushed to local area hospitals because they were in critical condition," said Smith.

Many of those who need assistance are younger vets coming out of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan where they served multiple deployments.
