We need your help showing support for our courts on Thursday, February 14.
Adequate funding for our state courts is a top priority of the BBA, please join us at the Grand Staircase at the Massachusetts State House at 11:00am.
The purpose of the event is to urge our legislators to support the judiciary’s maintenance budget request of $589M. It is critical that our state courts receive funding in the requested amounts so that all litigants may receive the timely and efficient administration of justice.
After a short speaking program that includes President J.D. Smeallie, participants will be encouraged to follow up with their own legislators to ask them to provide adequate funding for the judiciary.
Want more information? The Trial Court just released their revised "blue sheet" on court funding.
This event is co-sponsored by the Boston Bar Association and Massachusetts Bar Association.
