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

    7 AM EDT

    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.
