Attorney General Barr on passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg September 18, 2020, “Her legal ability, personal integrity, and determination were beyond doubt”
“In a 2015 dissent, Justice Ginsburg, citing a New York Times article examining arbitration agreements, wrote that the 2011 decision and later ones “have predictably resulted in the deprivation of consumers’ rights to seek redress for losses, and, turning the coin, they have insulated powerful economic interests from liability for violations of consumer protection laws.””...NY Times May 21, 2018
“Having experienced the abuse of mandated arbitration first hand, I agree with Justice Ginsburg. It may be the only time it happens, but injustice is injustice.”...Citizen Wells
From Attorney General William P. Barr September 18, 2020.
“On behalf of the Department of Justice, I extend my deepest sympathy on the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg led one of the great lives in the history of American law. She was a brilliant and successful litigator, an admired court of appeals judge, and a profoundly influential Supreme Court Justice. For all her achievements in those roles, she will perhaps be remembered most for inspiring women in the legal profession and beyond. She and I did not agree on every issue, but her legal ability, personal integrity, and determination were beyond doubt. She leaves a towering legacy, and all who seek justice mourn her loss.”
“Our right to our day in court has been severely eroded.”…Citizen Wells
