7th Modification forbids follow
We have to have to have a serious discussion in our nation about the federal courts’ penchant for routinely granting summary judgments in favor of firms and governing administration companies in circumstances brought by citizens of our country for their authorized redresses against wrongdoing.
For clarification, “summary judgment” is a course of action that firms and governing administration organizations employ in purchase to influence federal judges to toss out peoples’ situations so that a human being does not have an prospect to existing his/her situation to a jury. Federal judges across the country are passing out favorable summary judgment rulings to companies and federal government agencies as if they were being offering sweet to a newborn.
The federal Structure is the supreme regulation of the land and the Seventh Amendment explicitly states, “In Satisfies at common law,…, the suitable of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no truth tried using by a jury, shall be or else reexamined in any Court docket of the United States, than in accordance to the policies of widespread regulation.” Somewhere alongside the way legal professionals and judges resolved to set roadblocks in spot to prevent persons from receiving their instances to a jury by means of the use of a summary judgment motion, notwithstanding that the “right” to a jury trial “shall be preserved” by virtue of the Seventh Modification to the United States Structure.
In my impression, the use of a summary judgment motion is an impermissible and unconstitutional intrusion towards citizens’ legal rights to a jury demo, as summary judgments interfere with the citizens’ elementary right to search for redress below the Seventh Amendment. If the Seventh Amendment is to have any which means, then corrective measures require to be taken to treatment this governmental injustice in order that the peoples’ legal rights to a demo by jury beneath the Seventh Modification are preserved and not abused as is at the moment occurring with the unconstitutional procedure of summary judgments.
Federal judges really should no for a longer period ignore the peoples’ rights to a jury demo underneath the Seventh Modification in order to protect businesses and authorities organizations that are abusing peoples’ legal rights, the Constitution forbids it!
