Civil Justice Issues
Our 7th Amendment right to trial by jury is one of the most fundamental rights we have as Americans. Our civil courts ensure that when our rights are threatened or we are harmed physically or financially, we can receive justice — even when taking on the most wealthy and powerful interests. There is an unprecedented attack on our 7th Amendment rights. It is being led by billion-dollar corporate interests who want to increase profit at our expense. Our civil courts are the only place where they can be held accountable. If there is no accountability, none of us are safe.
