Fall 2009 introduced to America our Community Forums On Judicial Accountability
These free, approximately 1.5 hour sessions explore and expand upon the profound conclusion reached by a distinguished panel that “(r)estoring the Rule of Law when breached is an obligation of and should directly involve all Americans.”
Another NFOJA Milestone:
Exploring the Vitality of Stare Decisis in America is about much more than a legal doctrine. It examines the administration of justice in America; not simply to highlight its strengths or flaws (which the book does), but to determine whether it ultimately enshrines the rule of law.

February 2011 -- Welcome to NFOJA's public service program, Citizen Panels On Judicial Misconduct. Through this new program NFOJA receives, reviews, and endorses (or opts not to endorse) judicial misconduct complaints before appropriate government agencies. The program is an unofficial, modified version of NFOJA's plan for judicial discipline via private citizen panels.
Participants / complainants must detail their grievance on prescribed forms which are distributed when complete to a volunteer panel that considers the matter at a public, electronic hearing and votes for NFOJA to endorse or forego endorsing the underlying grievance before appropriate government agencies.
Dear Chief Justice John Roberts,
The Supreme Court's decisions impact the lives of Americans everywhere.
Unfortunately, only a privileged few get to witness history and see justice in action by attending oral arguments.
Leaders of both parties, joined by a large majority of Americans, support an alternative – allowing cameras in the Supreme Court.
State and federal courts allow cameras in the interest of transparency and giving the people access to their government. We urge the nation's top court do the same.
I hope you will heed our call for a more open judiciary and make the Court more accessible to every American by allowing cameras to broadcast oral arguments. Additional exposure to the high quality of the debates that takes place daily before the Supreme Court can only enhance the Court's stature and the public's knowledge, understanding and esteem for the Court.
