Pa Bar Opposes Legislation to Reduce Number of Supreme Court Justices and Superior Court Judges

From the Pennsylvania Bar Association

Members Urged to Oppose Legislation Reducing Number of Judges on State Appellate Courts

The PBA Board of Governors voted unanimously on June 11 in favor of the Judicial Administration Committee's resolution opposing Senate Bill 324, as amended to reduce the number of Supreme Court justices by two and the number of Superior Court judges by four. "We oppose this legislation because the proposed reductions to the courts would distress the current system, delay rulings and adversely impact access to justice for all Pennsylvanians as well as cause inefficiencies in the administration of the commonwealth's entire judicial system," said PBA President Francis X. O'Connor. The legislation is moving quickly. PBA members are urged to contact their state senators and ask them to oppose SB 324. Read the approved resolution.
