ABA Joins Legal Groups in Condemning Cuts to Judiciary

The American Bar Association has joined two other legal groups in condemning the impact that “severe and indiscriminate federal court budget reductions through sequestration” will have on the judicial system. The statement, jointly released with the American Association for Justice and DRI-The Voice of the Defense Bar, says that sequestration will cause “costly delays,” affecting “the federal judiciary and every individual and business that depends on our courts” and urges policymakers on Capital Hill and statehouses across the county to ”provide adequate funding for our federal and state judiciaries.”
