The United States Justice Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public interest, legal action organization that instructs, informs and educates the public on, and litigates, significant legal issues confronting America.
USJF was founded in 1979 by attorneys seeking to advance the conservative viewpoint in the judicial arena. In June 2018, James V. Lacy, a member of the U.S. Supreme Court bar who served as a General Counsel in the Reagan Administration, became the new President of USJF and is taking the organization in a new and invigorated direction to support constitutional freedoms.
Since 1980, USJF has submitted testimony to the U.S. Senate on Supreme Court appointees and sponsored conferences on a variety of important legal issues.
USJF publishes studies and reports on topical issues and distributes them free of charge to opinion leaders, students and the general public.
USJF has contributed directly and indirectly to support legal efforts in many celebrated cases involving fundamental conservative principles, and most recently, USJF has filed briefs in Federal Appellate Courts and many on the winning side in several recent U.S. Supreme Court cases including support of the Trump Administration’s position on the terrorist travel ban (Hawaii vs. Trump), state’s rights in limiting the affects of illegal immigration (Brewer vs. Arizona Dream Act Coalition), protection of First Amendment rights of pro-life abortion crisis centers, (National Institute of Family and Life Advocates vs. Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California), First Amendment religious rights of private businesses (Masterpiece Cake vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission), protection of Fourth Amendment rights in limiting warrantless searches of cell phone data (Carpenter vs. United States) just to name a few.
