Quote of the Day - Justice consists not in being neutral between right and wrong, but in finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found, against the wrong.
On Friday last week, JAMS recanted, and will now continue to hear all cases without prejudging the outcome. According to the press release, "JAMS is withdrawing its policy for the following reasons: The initial statement of the policy suggested to some that JAMS had deviated from its core value of neutrality. We want to reaffirm to all of our constituencies that we have a fundamental responsibility and commitment to absolute neutrality and the highest ethical and professional standards." The release also cited the varying law on this point across numerous jurisdictions.
Good move, JAMS.
