Please Help Us Fight for You
Once again TTLA faces a wide array of attacks on fair access to the right to trial by jury. Among the bills filed to date are HB 969 which would prohibit consideration of a defendant’s net worth in punitive damages deliberations and HB 820 which would prohibit recovery of non-economic damages in motor vehicle cases if the plaintiff is uninsured.

Protect the The 7th Amendment - The Right to Trial by Jury
I consider [trial by jury] as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its Constitution. --Thomas Jefferson to Thomas Paine
The founders of our nation considered the right of trial by jury in civil cases an important bulwark against tyranny and corruption, a 'safeguard too precious to be left to the whim of the sovereign.' -- Chief Justice William Rehnquist, 1979
