For decades, big insurance, negligent corporations and government agencies have
sought to rig the civil justice system and state workers’ compensation system in favor of

Our mission is simple. We are dedicated to safeguarding the Seventh Amendment
constitutional right to a trial by jury. It is the only constitutionally-guaranteed right that
ensures that all citizens retain the right to hold public and private sector entities – more
powerful than themselves – accountable under the law, regardless of a citizen’s stature,
power or financial resources. This means when executive and legislative watchdogs of
the government fail to adequately protect innocent people, citizens have the power and
a remedy to hold those negligent entities accountable under the law. The right of trial by
jury is a foundation of our democracy. It ensures everyday Americans – a jury of your
peers – ultimately have the last word.
