Justice belongs to us all. That's why AAJ works hard to make sure any person who is injured by the misconduct and negligence of others can get justice in the courtroom, even when taking on the most powerful interests. The Fight for Justice Campaign is AAJ's winning campaign to make our case to the public and tell the real story about the civil justice system - that trial attorneys' unwavering commitment to justice ensures that every person is on a level playing field in the courtroom and able to hold wrongdoers accountable.
Judicial Interest, the amount added to a claim that is succesful, is set by the Legislature, and changes from year to year. It can be complicated calculating judicial interest once a cae has gone to final judgment, and the amounts may be significant in some cases.

Guide to vehicle values; Kelley Blue Book
In the early 1920s, to help acquire new inventory, Les Kelley distributed to other dealers and to banks a list of Kelley Blue Book - Resourcesautomobiles he wished to buy and the prices he was willing to pay for them. The automotive community began to trust his judgment so much as an accurate reflection of current values, they started to request the list for their own use. When someone asked a dealer what his used car might be worth, the dealer usually took a look at Mr. Kelley's list, conveniently tucked under his desk blotter. It didn't take long for Les Kelley to realize that he could provide an ongoing service to dealers and bankers alike.
