JAS Sets Capitol Hill Briefing

The Justice at Stake Campaign will brief members of Congress, their staff and others in a Friday session about keeping our courts fair and impartial.

The Capitol Hill event, entitled “Justice for Sale? The Battle for America’s Courts,” will feature the following speakers: the Honorable Wanda Bryant, Judge at the North Carolina Court of Appeals; Seth Andersen of the American Judicature Society; Adam Skaggs of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University; and Hugh Caperton, plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case, Caperton v. Massey. Justice at Stake staff, including Executive Director Bert Brandenburg, also will make presentations.

U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson of Georgia will co-host the 2 p.m. event. People interested in attending should RSVP Caitlin Russi at crussi[at]justiceatstake.org. Justice at Stake is a nonpartisan national partnership working to keep courts fair, impartial and free from special-interest and partisan agendas.
