The separation of powers in America is a critical, fundamental concept that our Founders carefully thought through. There is an important need for checks and balances between the executive, legislative and judiciary branches. When Congress, the Administration, or state and local governments overstep their Constitutional authority and violate the rights of individuals, it is up to the Courts to correct these actions, which can often have devastating consequences for people, their families, and their businesses.
The Institute for Justice and the Pacific Legal Foundation are two of America’s leading public interest litigation firms willing to take on the government on behalf of citizens when rights violations occur. Similar but different, these two groups are fighting to preserve liberty and opportunity for Americans. Join us on Thursday April 8th at 2 pm when we hear from them about the compelling legal cases they have asked the Supreme Court to take on, and why they are essential questions for every American. We will also hear how PLF’s arguments on behalf of the Cedar Point Nursery were received by our Highest Court – they will appear before the 9 Justices on March 22nd.
