Ricardo LorenzettiRicardo Luis Lorenzetti (born in Rafaela, Santa Fe Province, September 19, 1955) is an Argentine judge graduated from the National University of the Littoral, Argentina, with a long national and international career. He used to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Argentina (2007-2018), proposed by President Néstor Kirchner and approved by the Senate, assuming his position on December 12, 2004, covering the vacancy caused by the resignation of Justice Adolfo Vázquez. On November 7, 2006, he was appointed Chief Justice, officiated as of January 1, 2007. Currently, he is one of the five Justices of the Supreme Court. He was President of the Commission for the preparation of the Parliamentary Act to reform, update and unify the Civil and Commercial Codes of the Argentine Nation, Presidential Decree 191/2011.
In addition, during his presidency, the Court was very innovative due to its take on class actions and also due to the implementation of several institutional devices such as CIJ, a news agency dedicated to the Judiciary’s transparency. Also, the Court developed and installed spaces aimed to gender protection (Oficina de violencia doméstica, y Oficina de la Mujer) [http://www.cij.gov.ar].
A statement by UCR figure and former Mar del Plata Mayor Daniel Katz in support of a potential spot for Lorenzetti as Julio Cobos's running mate in the 2011 presidential election led to friction with the administration of President Cristina Kirchner, whose Cabinet Chief, Aníbal Fernández, expressed disapproval at Lorenzetti's silence on the issue.
On 23 June 2013, Lorenzetti claimed that he was being threatened and extorted by AFIP President Ricardo Echegaray. Lorenzetti claims the intimidation was in response to his verdicts against the constitutionality of government legislation. AFIP has denied any such investigation.
Since 2020, Lorenzetti has been serving as an Ex-Officio and Institutional Board Member for the Inter-American Institute on Justice and Sustainability (IIJS) in the city of Washington, D.C., in United States of America where the organization has its headquarters. Provided by Wikipedia
