The commuting graph of a finite group $G$, $\mathcal{C}(G)$, is a simple graph with vertex set $G$ in which two vertices $x$ and $y$ are adjacent if and only if $xy = yx$. The aim of this paper is to compute the distance Laplacian spectrum and the distance Laplacian energy of the commuting graph of $CA$-groups.
