Building a Better Future Together - Equal Justice Works

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we're celebrating the hard work of our Fellows—like Anne Piervil, Carlos Andino, and Kateland Woodcock, to name just a few—whose service brings us ever closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

“Service is how I express my gratitude to my community for supporting me," said Anne. "[Service is] how I ensure other children of immigrants have the opportunity to succeed."

In honor of MLK Day 2021, we reflect on three Fellows—Anne Piervil, Carlos Andino, and Kateland Woodcock—who embody Dr. King's values.

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, a time to recognize the millions of people trafficked worldwide each year, and the collective efforts made to prevent further exploitation.

Upon concluding our Crime Victims Justice Corps (CVJC), we were stunned by its impact in just two years: from 2018 to 2020, 62 Fellows and 44 law students assisted more than 4,000 crime victims, including 2,336 trafficking survivors.

On the Siege at the U.S. Capitol – a Note from Executive Director David Stern - Equal Justice Works

Yesterday’s hate-filled violent siege on the Capitol was scary and upsetting, especially considering it was the president and certain members of Congress who incited the mob.

The actions we saw yesterday were designed to intimidate, silence, and undermine our democracy. These actions are directly inconsistent with our core organizational values: equal access to justice, opportunity, service, community, and passion. The behavior we witnessed was particularly frightening because we are based in Washington, D.C., and many of you and our Fellows live in the local area. My thoughts are with all of you, our Fellows, and our community, as we continue to navigate this upsetting time.

It was also deeply troubling to see the contrast with how these violent rioters were treated in comparison to the peaceful protestors in support of Black Lives Matter, who were subjected to tear gas, rubber bullets, and batons. I know that yesterday’s events would have resulted in more violent reactions from the police had the rioters been Black.

We believe in our nation’s promise of equal justice for all, and we condemn anti-democratic and violent acts that seek to block the American ideal of a peaceful transition of power.

David Stern, Equal Justice Works Executive Director

The following letter was sent from David Stern to staff in response to yesterday's hate-filled siege on the U.S. Capitol.

Virtual Hearings May Serve Justice Better Than A Courtroom - Law360

Eight months into the pandemic, judges, attorneys, and defendants alike are anxious to move back into physical courtrooms, in pursuit of crucial, missing information: body language. But what if more information makes our judgement worse, not better?

Jennifer Shulkin of Law360 makes the case for continuing virtual hearings and letting computers play a bigger part in decision-making, even after the pandemic ends.

Seen by many as a poor substitute for in-person hearings, virtual proceedings may actually provide a fairer picture of criminal defendants than judges' intuitive, face-to-face character assessments — in which body language, eye contact and style of dress can hold sway, says Jennifer Shulkin at Ste...

Jane Handley, a 2006 graduate of Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, cites her passion for elder justice as the reason she attended law school in the first place. Now, as one of the 22 Fellows in our Elder Justice Program, she's returning to her roots after years spent prosecuting domestic violence cases.

"I felt that this was a perfect way for me to use the skills I’ve learned in prosecution and apply them to helping this especially vulnerable segment of society,” Jane said.

Jane Handley, ’06, has been selected for the Equal Justice Works Elder Justice Program fellowship. Handley will spend her two-year fellowship at Indiana Legal Services in the Legal Assistance for Victimized Adults Project.

The coming war on the hidden algorithms that trap people in poverty

Credit scores have been used for decades to assess consumers, but the adoption of privately created algorithms, which assess “worthiness” based on ever-expanding troves of personal data, has created a system where Americans can be automatically rejected from crucial services—healthcare, affordable housing, food assistance—for often inexplicable reasons.

2012 Fellow Kevin De Liban is one of a growing number of lawyers seeking to understand the secrets of this shadowy new technology, in hopes of leveling the playing field for low-income clients.

A growing group of lawyers are uncovering, navigating, and fighting the automated systems that deny the poor from housing, jobs, and basic services.

Utah inmates are dying from coronavirus, as advocates call for an investigation

Utah prison officials were able to keep the coronavirus out of their two facilities ... until October. Now, advocates and family members worry that not enough is being done to keep people in prison safe as the virus spreads.

"There needs to be, at this point, an independent investigation and evaluation about the medical care that people are receiving at the prison," said Sara Wolovick, an Equal Justice Works Fellow at ACLU Utah.

The moment Utah prison officials had feared since the beginning of the pandemic is here.

Most popular course ever at Georgetown Law? How to fight for justice.

For many law students, the pandemic has dealt a massive blow to career paths—the summer law firm positions and potential full-time offers—that seemed all but locked in place. A new course at Georgetown Law, led by Dean (and Equal Justice Works Board member) William Treanor, is helping students reimagine their expectations, aspirations, and definitions of success.

At a time when cascading events are making some students feel helpless, and when isolation can be overwhelming, a class at Georgetown University Law Center highlights people who effected important change, with an emphasis on community, social impact and the common good.

Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel through her Assistant Attorney General Daniel J. Ping just submitted a brief to the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division located in Detroit a motion to dismiss Jeremiah's Writ of Habeas Corpus for failure to Exhaust all State Claims. 1. Jeremiah attempted to fairly present all of his claims in support of his Innocence to the Michigan State Court of Appeals and to the Michigan State Supreme Court. These Courts accepted, rejected, and then denied his motions. 2. Jeremiah was assigned two court of Appeals Attorneys. Attorney Daniel Rust was assigned as Jeremiah's First Attorney for COA 324275 and he only appealed the extremely high sentence Jeremiah received 22-40 years. Court of Appeals Presiding Judge Amy Ronayne Krause said in her decision that Jeremiah infected Brittney with the STD Herpes. No Evidence was ever presented in any court by anyone that either Brittney or Jeremiah had Herpes. The Rash that Brittney had in 2005 was not Herpes per Dr. Leja of Cheboygan Michigan. The blood test that showed Brittney positive for Herpes showed her positive for a past out break not a current one in 2005. A medical record from where Brittney was born in 1998 showed Brittney was never tested for any STD's in 1998.This is all contained in a 10 page Michigan State Police report and hidden from the Jury. This Brady violation has never been addressed by the high courts of Michigan. Attorney Rust received a letter of reprimand by the Attorney Discipline Board in 2017 for a different case for Professional Misconduct while acting as court appointed appellate counsel in a criminal matter. 3. Jeremiah was recently Appointed Court of Appeals Attorney Alona Sharon by the Presque Isle County Trial Court. During Jeremiah's Prison Video Conference with Attorney Sharon she told Jeremiah she was only going to Appeal his extremely High Sentence. Jeremiah asked Alona what about the rest of his Issues contained in court of Appeals case 340063 she said that Attorney Rust should have appealed those. Alona said that she was told only to Appeal the extremely high sentence. She would not tell Jeremiah who told her this. We suspect that it was the Judges of Presque Isle County. 4. We filed this writ of Habeas Corpus with the Federal Government based upon Cause and Prejudice which resulted in a fundamental miscarriage of justice against an Innocent man. Coleman v Thompson, 501 U.S. 722, 111 S. Ct. 2546, 115 L. Ed. 2d 640 (1991). A fundamental miscarriage of justice has occurred when it is found that a constitutional violation has probably resulted in the conviction of someone actually innocent. Murry, 477 U.S. at 496, 106 S. Ct. 2639. Jeremiah's U.S. Constitutional rights to receive a fair trial free from Prejudice and Bias was violated by Judge Pavlich and Prosecutor Steiger. I was Subpoenaed and sequestered for three days of the Trial in June 2014. I was not allowed to testify. 5. A Michigan State case involving CSC 1st degree based exclusively on the evidence of a single purported eyewitness the alleged victim of the crime was granted a new trial because of Newly Discovered Impeachment Evidence. This case is People v Grissom involving SC case 140147 and COA Case 274148. Another Michigan Case People v Cress, 468 Mich 678, 692, 664 NW 2d 174 (2003). Sets the four prong standard that the Impeachment evidence must satisfy. People v Barbara, 400 Mich 352, 255 NW2d 171 (1977); People v Armstrong, Nw2d, No 142762, 2011 WL 5083255 (Mich, Oct 26, 2011). permits trial courts the discretion to grant a new trial based upon newly-discovered evidence when such evidence casts doubt on the credibility of a key witness. Numerous cases from jurisdictions around the country also recognize that newly discovered impeachment evidence that cast doubt on the credibility of a key witness can properly form the basis for the grant of a new trial for a criminal defendant. State v Plude, 750 NW2d 42 ( Wis 2008 ). State v Strahl, 768 NW2d 546 (SD 2009). Courts universally recognize that it is appropriate to grant a new trial in cases where the prosecution withholds impeachment evidence in violation of its disclosure obligations under Brady v Maryland, 373 US 83, 83 S Ct 1194 ( 1963 ). Imposing a per se rule that newly-discovered impeachment evidence cannot form the basis for a new trial would undermine the defendants constitutional rights under the confrontation clause of the Sixth Amendment. People v Hackett, 421 Mich 338, 348, 365 NW2d 120 ( 1984 ). 6. Please see the face book blog Jeremiah Dewey is Innocent for more information.
As a 2003 alum I wanted to thank you so much for help lay the groundwork to my becoming a judge in Harris County. As a public servant I so grateful for the opportunity given to me by EJW and Texas Equal Access to Justice Foundation. I promise to serve to the best of my ability and to always remember the courthouse doors are open for ALL people not just those who have the ability to pay a lawyer. thank you again. 🙂❤️
