Bay Area Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse (BACALA) is a not-for-profit, nonpartisan grassroots movement of concerned citizens and businesses who are fighting against lawsuit abuse in the Corpus Christi area. BACALA serves as a watchdog to challenge the abuse of our civil justice system, and engages the public and the media to deliver the message that lawsuit abuse is alive and well in Texas — and that all Texans are paying the price.
