Statement Concerning Violent Mob Attack on U.S. Capitol
ATRA President Tiger Joyce released the following statement in response to the unprecedented attack on the U.S. Capitol building on January 6:
“Violence in support of a political candidate or a favored cause is never acceptable. Those who attacked Members of Congress while they were carrying out their constitutional responsibility to certify the election of President-elect Joseph R. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, their staff, the media, and law enforcement officials protecting them, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Above all else, we must abide by the rule of law. Failure to do so threatens the very fabric of our society.
The American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) advocates for a fairer civil justice system for all. In doing so, we engage in spirited policy debates with those who hold opposing beliefs, but at the end of the day, we are each Americans and we must accept our losses and our wins with grace and dignity. ATRA commends Members of Congress and their staffs for returning to the Capitol Building last night to carry out their essential duties. We also express our appreciation to those law enforcement officials and first responders who ensured that this could take place and to members of the media for tirelessly reporting on the day’s events as they lived through them.”
