Independence of the Judiciary

The ABA supports legislation to preserve the decisional and institutional independence of the Federal Judiciary and opposes efforts that undermine the judicial process. The ABA urges congress to provide the Federal Judiciary with sufficient funding to carry out its constitutional and statutory duties. The ABA also urges the President and the Senate to work with common purpose to authorize a sufficient number of federal judgeships to handle the workload of the federal courts in an impartial, just, and timely manner.
