VAIBS vs. Suruga Bank

VAIBS vs. Suruga Bank is not simply about a bank account. The policies struck down by this lawsuit are products of the human tendencies to prejudge, discriminate against, and stereotype other people by their ethnic characteristics. Ending this behavior as an arbitrary practice caused far reaching social and ideological implications, which continue to be felt throughout our country. The VAIBS lawsuit inspired and galvanized human rights struggles across the country and around the world.

What this legal challenge represents is at the core of our history and the freedoms we enjoy. The VAIBS lawsuit began a critical chapter in the maturation of our democracy. It reaffirmed the sovereign power of the people of Japan in the protection of their natural rights from arbitrary limits and restrictions imposed by Suruga Bank. These rights are recognized in the Personal Information Protection Act and guaranteed by the Japan’s Constitution.
