Vermont Bar Association President Elizabeth Kruska issued the following statement in response to the sobering events that unfolded in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021: “The Vermont Bar Association condemns, in the strongest terms, the assault of January 6, 2021 on the United States Capitol during the Electoral College vote certification. We stand in support of the rule of law, the Constitution, and the peaceful transition of power. We call upon our leaders to stand for our democratic principles, and to condemn this insurrection. The legal profession is sworn to uphold the rule of law, and the rule of law will not yield to those who resort to violence to attempt to upend the electoral process set forth in the Constitution.”
