CALDA Calls for Rejection of Assembly Bill 888

On June 13, 2013, the California Association of Legal Document Assistants issued the following press release:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (June 13, 2013)---Simply filling out legal forms may soon get very expensive for California consumers, if the State Bar has its way.

 

The California Association of Legal Document Assistants (CALDA) is calling for the rejection of Assembly Bill 888, which if passed, would allow the State Bar to collect civil penalties from those it deems as "unfair competition" and provides for one-way reimbursement of "expenses incurred by the State Bar in the investigation and prosecution" of said competition.

Dan Walters, Sacramento Bee

"The State Bar appears to be doing more about the glut than wringing its institutional hands. It's sponsoring legislation that could eliminate some competition from providers of do-it-yourself legal forms."
