Goddard Claussen is a public relations firm which boasts that it is “the most successful issue advocacy firm in America. Winning for our clients led us to create the first national advocacy advertising campaign in America, the first political advertising in the former Soviet Union, and the first feature film that educates as it entertains. When you think of breaking down barriers, think Goddard Claussen.”[1]

Goddard Claussen is the PR firm working to suspend California’s Global Warming Solutions Act, AB 32[2]; yet this firm is also listed among the members of American Businesses for Clean Energy, as supporting “climate and energy legislation that will provide meaningful change for future generations and businesses.”[3]

    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them.

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels.
