“The American Bar Association condemns the recent terrorist attacks in Orlando. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the families and friends of the victims as well as all of the communities devastated by this tragic attack.

“As an association committed to fairness and equality, the ABA is horrified by any acts that target particular groups for their lifestyles, beliefs, background or ethnicity. The ABA will redouble our efforts to ensure that hatred, bigotry and violence do not take control of our nation.  Our country’s commitment to the rule of law needs to prevail as we work to heal from this tragedy.”
