Thanks to many folks in the Golden State who still don't quite know the difference between a right and a privilege, the current hit to the California state budget from lawsuits stands at $1 billion and counting. The prevailing mindset of solving the budget crisis by suing the state for making certain budget cuts is impressive even by the highly litigious standards in this country. As the state would have undoubtedly been chastised for wasteful spending by hiring expensive lawyers to defend its interest in court, their record so far against lobbying groups mimics that of a pitcher who is about to be sent down to the minors. With a few more "wins", the only group of people happier than the victorious lobbying groups will be the newly freed California inmate population.
