Mills moderates ABA panel
Jon Mills, director of UF Law’s Center for Governmental Responsibility,
Dean Emeritus, moderated a panel at the American Bar Association’s Annual Meeting in Toronto that included retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
The topic of the discussion was the current crisis in judicial funding. The panelists discussed the problems contributing to insufficient court funding and how to address the issue. Mills stressed the fact that because of underfunding, justice is delayed for many, which equates to justice being denied for many.
The panel was also comprised of Mary McQueen, president of the National Center for State Courts; David Boies and Theodore B. Olson, co-chairs of the Task Force on Preservation of the Justice System; and Rod Snow, president of the Canadian Bar Association.
