Washington, DC — The following is a statement from American Association for Justice President Larry Tawwater:

“As an association of advocates for Americans who rely on the civil justice system to ensure their rights under the law are protected and enforced, the American Association for Justice condemns any threat to a fair and impartial judiciary. Political attacks on individual judges, including those based on a judge’s ethnicity or religious background, jeopardize the fair administration of justice and threaten to undermine the Rule of Law.”

The American Association for Justice works to preserve the constitutional right to trial by jury and to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations. Visit http://www.justice.org
