WASHINGTON (AP) — Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign has released information on dozens of court cases in which the former law professor-turned-Democratic senator served as counsel, expert witness or mediator or otherwise assisted parties in reaching bankruptcy settlements.

The Warren camp’s disclosure of the cases on Wednesday goes further than a list of cases she released in 2012, when her GOP challenger during her first Senate campaign in Massachusetts criticized her for representing corporate interests.

In a summary of the candidate’s cases, the Warren campaign wrote that “the core challenge of bankruptcy is that it attempts to resolve a situation that involves suffering for everyone involved.” The campaign adds that Warren “worked to help set up trusts and other mechanisms to return 7 billion to victims and their families.”
