    Justice in The Crosshairs: Defending Judicial Independence – the Keystone of Justice – in the U.S. and the World [CC]

    Our blue-ribbon front-line panel explores threats to judicial independence in the U.S. and abroad and the duty of attorneys to combat it. Texas Supreme Chief Justice Nathan Hecht is a strong advocate for judicial independence as is Marsha Ternus, former Chief Justice of the Iowa Supreme Court who, along with two fellow justices, were successful targets for nonretention by well-financed interest groups angered over the court’s unanimous decision holding unconstitutional the state law forbidding same-sex marriage. Associate Justice José Ramón Cossío Díaz of the Mexican Supreme Court and Judge Dariusz Masur, a trial court judge in Krakow and spokesperson for THEMIS, an association of Polish judges, illustrate how the threat to judicial independence plays out on foreign soil.

    What confidence would you have in the umpires' calls if they also worked for the owner of the baseball team? Increasing political pressure undermining judicial independence and separation of powers is a signature concern for the ABA. True justice and public respect for the rule of law depends on fair application of the law by an impartial, independent and credible judiciary not beholden to special interest groups and political contributors. Our blue-ribbon front-line panel explores threats to judicial independence in the U.S. and abroad and the duty of attorneys to combat it. Texas Supreme Chief Justice Nathan Hecht is a strong advocate for judicial independence as is Marsha Ternus, former Chief Justice of the Iowa Supreme Court who, along with two fellow justices, were successful targets for nonretention by well-financed interest groups angered over the court's unanimous decision holding unconstitutional the state law forbidding same-sex marriage. Associate Justice José Ramón Cossío Díaz of the Mexican Supreme Court and Judge Dariusz Masur, a trial court judge in Krakow and spokesperson for THEMIS, an association of Polish judges, illustrates how the threat to judicial independence plays out on foreign soil.
