U.S. Chamber of Commerce Plans Push on State Supreme Court, AG Races
January 13, 2012
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans a “major effort” on state Supreme Court and Attorneys General elections this fall – a welcome signal that America’s leading business group will be fully engaged on races that are critical to promoting tort reform and reining in activist judges and AGs. The news came in Chamber President Tom Donohue’s annual State of American Business address. The organization I run, the American Justice Partnership will also be active in key races, supporting Supreme Court and AG candidates who believe judges should interpret the law, not legislate from the bench. Together, AJP and the Chamber’s mutual efforts are making a difference in advancing the rule of law and ensuring judicial accountability.
