A Sacramento-based group awarded Assemblyman Adam Gray, D-Merced, the Civil Justice Leadership Award on Wednesday for legislation he has pushed related to predatory lawsuits regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act, an issue brought to light by a Merced Sun-Star and Modesto Bee special report last year.

Civil Justice Association of California, which works in the court system to reduce unwarranted and excessive litigation, praised Gray. The group works with many politicians in Sacramento and President Kim Stone called Gray "one of the good ones."
