In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, NACA wrote: "Access to justice is a fundamental right of the American people and small businesses. Yet overwhelmingly, harmed consumers and small businesses face impenetrable obstacles when they seek to go to court to obtain remedies. The Committee should reject any proposals that would further delay and deny ordinary people and small businesses of the right to use the public court system or that would interfere with the ability of judges and juries to do their jobs. Instead, the Committee should examine ways to restore meaningful remedies and access to court for individuals and small merchants."
