Jan Norman
Orange County Register Reporter/Columnist
Jan Norman writes the popular It’s Your Business column for the Orange County Register. She frequently writes about the costs and consequences of frivolous lawsuits on businesses, their employees and ability to stay in business. Jan Norman provides the media attention necessary to educate the public, who in turn can persuade policy makers, to pass common sense civil justice reforms.

Carmen Trutanich
City of Los Angeles, City Attorney

Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich leads one of the largest governmental legal offices in the nation and oversees both criminal and civil jurisdiction throughout Los Angeles. Since taking office, City Attorney Trutanich has taken a number of steps to reduce taxpayer costs of unwarranted lawsuits against the City by making it more costly for those who choose to sue it.

Curt Hagman
60th Assembly District

Assemblyman Curt Hagman is a member of the Judiciary Committee. His personal actions as a Good Samaritan rescuing a couple from a burning car, inspired him to co-sponsor SB 39, the Good Samaritan Protection Act, to overturn the controversial legal ruling from the California Supreme Court that stated a “Good Samaritan” could be sued for trying to help someone in need. Because of his effort, Good Samaritans are immune from liability.
