Special Victims’ Rights Issue

The proposed Victims’ Rights Amendment, one version of which has been introduced into the current session of Congress as Senate Resolution 6 by Senators Feinstein and Kyl, reflects the intense interest in this issue in the United States and abroad. This interest already has resulted in constitutional amendments and statutes in many states, victims’ rights policies and programs in other countries, and even an international declaration. The supporters and proponents of the amendment in the United States cut across traditional political affiliations. Both “liberal” and “conservative” persons and organizations support the proposed amendment. Likewise, both “liberal” and “conservative” persons and organizations oppose the proposed amendment. There are good arguments for and against the proposed amendment. Judges and court personnel, as well as members of Congress and their constituencies—the citizens of the United States—should be aware of the full range of arguments relating to Senate Resolution 6 and the circumstances surrounding its creation and introduction in Congress. The Federal Judicial Center is pleased to publish this special issue of The State–Federal Judicial Observer, which focuses on the arguments and circumstances surrounding the proposed amendment, for the purpose of encouraging enlightened debate.
