Group Launches Litigation Clearinghouse

A coalition of groups calling itself the Fair Courts Litigation Task Force has launched a new website designed to track litigation that could impact the nation’s court system. The website will compile information on litigation that either challenges or supports ethical rules aimed at keeping the judiciary free from partisan politics and outside influences. "This website will prove a valuable resource for all who care about the integrity of our judicial system," said Justice at Stake Acting Executive Director Liz Seaton. Member organizations include the American Judicature Society, the Brennan Center for Justice, Justice at Stake, the National Center for State Courts and The Campaign Legal Center.
