We Need Your Help
Adequate funding of our state courts is a top priority of the BBA. The
private bar has an important role to play in informing the legislature that
adequate funding of our state courts is important to our system of
justice. Over the last three years, we have issued reports (FYs 2010,
chronicling the negative impacts cuts to the judiciary’s budget have had on the
administration of justice and our community. Our work is not done.
Please join us – and enlist your colleagues and others to join us – in
showing our support at an event co-sponsored by the Boston Bar Association and
the Massachusetts Bar Association.
The purpose of the event is to urge our legislators to support the
judiciary’s request budget request of $593.9M,
which would allow for the restoration of essential services. After
Chief Justice Roderick L. Ireland and Chief Justice
Robert A. Mulligan address the group, participants will be encouraged
to follow up with their own legislators to ask them to provide adequate funding
for the judiciary. If you cannot attend, please contact your state
representative and senator with this message.
