Jon has appeared on "Oprah" and "NBC Nightly News" and has been quoted in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and U.S. News & World Report, as well as leading newspapers and broadcast media outlets in Texas. Before joining TAPA, Opelt served 11 years as the Executive Director of Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse Houston.

"Kids throughout Texas ought to be able to play ball without fear of getting sued," said Jon Opelt, Houston director of Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse.
Unless we make common-sense reforms in our legal system, frivolous lawsuits may soon replace baseball and apple pie as America's favorite tradition," Opelt said.

Unfortunately, wacky lawsuits are just the tip of the lawsuit abuse iceberg," said Jon Opelt, director of Houston's Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse.
"Junk lawsuits waste tax dollars and tie up court time. That means the rest of us pay when others use our courts for frivolous reasons. What's more, it means people with legitimate claims have to wait longer to have their case heard." Opelt noted that often cases take 2-3 years to be disposed in Harris County. "We support the rights of injured parties to use the legal system responsibly in seeking fair compensation. However, some of these lawsuits are darn right absurd," said Opelt.
