Walkup Partner Doris Cheng Appointed to National ABOTA’s Covid19 Task Force

The American Board of Trial Advocates (“ABOTA”) is the leading defender of the right to a civil jury trial under the Seventh Amendment.   As a member of the Executive Committee of ABOTA National and ABOTA’s COVID-19 Task Force, Doris Cheng is working to promote the preservation of jury trials during and after the current pandemic.

Doris commented:  “Jury trials are the cornerstone of our democracy.  It is important to our functional democracy that the Judicial Branch provide fair and meaningful access to justice while protecting everyone’s health and safety.  ABOTA COVID-19 Task Force aims to assist the Judicial Branch nationally and locally with these concerns.  It is my privilege to collaborate with our colleagues in furtherance of protecting our civil and human rights through the Task Force.”
