A report by Earthjustice, “Access to Justice: Defending Our Country and Our Courts,” shines a light on some of the myriad ways Congress and the administration are trying to undermine the public’s ability to hold them accountable. It showcases stories of people who faced off against rich and powerful special interest groups in fights for their lives, their health, their livelihoods and the places they love, and who were able to beat the odds because they were able to get into court.
