Public Justice is dedicated to advancing the interests in consumers through the civil justice system, including keeping the courts open to everyone. This means battling mandatory arbitration agreements, damage caps, and other similar legal proposals that have at heart the goal of denying court access to consumers and victims of negligence. Here is information from their Web site:
Public Justice (formerly Trial Lawyers for Public Justice) opened its doors 25 years ago to pursue an inspiring vision — building the trial lawyers’ public interest law firm. We have done that and more. Over the past quarter century, no public interest law firm in the country has been involved in a broader range of high-impact, cutting-edge litigation. So we’ve become Public Justice to pursue an expanded, inspiring vision — building America’s public interest law firm.
Public Justice fights for justice through precedent-setting and socially significant individual and class action litigation designed to enhance consumer and victims’ rights, environmental protection and safety, civil rights and civil liberties, workers’ rights, America’s civil justice system, and the protection of the poor and powerless. Our Access to Justice Campaign keeps the courthouse doors open to all by battling federal preemption of injury victims’ rights, unfair mandatory arbitration, class action bans and abuse, unnecessary secrecy in the courts, attacks on the right to counsel and jury trial, and unconstitutional legislation.
Public Justice is the principal project of the Public Justice Foundation, a non-profit membership organization. We are supported by – and can call on – a nationwide network of over 3,500 attorneys and others, including trial lawyers, appellate lawyers, consumer advocates, constitutional litigators, employment lawyers, environmental attorneys, civil rights lawyers, class action specialists, law professors and law students. Public Justice and the Public Justice Foundation are headquartered in Washington, D.C., and have a West Coast Office in Oakland, California. If you’re not a member, please join us or contribute.
