Sunday Brunch- Why Courts Matter page 1


Lawyers, judges, legislators, and the public are deeply concerned with the quality of candidates being nominated to the federal courts by this administration. This is raising difficult questions about what it means to have an independent judiciary and the importance of judicial integrity to the vital system of checks and balances of our democracy.

Thanks to a grant from Progress Florida Education Institute’s Why Courts Matter project and the Center for American Progress, Floridians are invited to a series of events featuring experts discussing key court decisions on important issues.
