ORGANIZATION

Nonprofit legal organization founded in 1977. Chairman Daniel J. Popeo described them this way: "I like to think of us as a small business version of the American Civil Liberties Union. Only our stress is on economic civil liberties."

The group's basic philosophy: "Most of the problems we have in America today, from cost-prohibitive government regulation to unchecked violent crime, can be traced back to activist lawyering by well-entrenched organizations committed to promoting an agenda through court action, new regulation, and enforcement activity, and advocacy-educational campaigns."
