Alumna Honored with Equal Justice Works Fellowship

"I feel immensely grateful to [The George Washington University Law School] for opening doors to educational and experiential opportunities that allowed me to explore my passion for vindicating the rights of survivors of power-based violence who are often ignored by our legal system because of their race, immigration status, criminal history, or socioeconomic status," said Michaela Lovejoy.

As a 2020 Equal Justice Works Fellow, Michaela is working at Bread for the City, where she will provide representation to immigrant survivors of power-based violence and human trafficking.

Michaela Lovejoy, JD ’20, receives the 2020 Equal Justice Works Fellowship, one of the most prestigious and competitive post-graduate legal fellowships in the country.

Family members protest after 278 prisoners test positive for coronavirus at Utah prison

2019 Fellow Sara Wolovick is advocating for inmates to ensure that jails are taking necessary steps to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

"Wolovick said ACLU Utah remains concerned that not enough is being done to protect inmates that may be in a section where the virus is spreading, but who have not yet tested positive for COVID-19. ... They also want the parole board to speed up its process of releasing inmates early, and get the extra funding to do so, if needed."

On the 2020 Election – a Note from Executive Director David Stern - Equal Justice Works

"This year’s elections bring with them a slew of emotions for all us because we know so much hangs in the balance. We are in the midst of a global pandemic with no immediate end in sight. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have died, and millions of Americans are jobless and at risk of being evicted, or having their power and water shut off because of unpaid bills. Black people and people of color in America face the added burden and danger of centuries of racism.

This general election will lay out how we as a country proceed in navigating our way through these and so many other known and unknown scenarios. Like many of you, I am anxious. But even in the face of that fear and anxiety, we will press forward."

Federal Lawsuit Challenges North Carolina Felony Voting Law - Southern Coalition for Social Justice

North Carolina’s Strict Liability Voting Law has made it almost impossible for people with criminal convictions to understand whether they are eligible to vote. In collaboration with his host organization, Southern Coalition for Social Justice, 2019 Fellow Mitchell Brown is challenging this vague law.

“The fear of prosecution under the Strict Liability Voting Law may deter thousands of eligible voters from casting their ballots and letting their voices be heard during the critical 2020 General Election,” said Mitchell.

Durham, N.C. — Two organizations focused on advancing equality and increasing political participation have filed a federal lawsuit challenging North Carolina’s Strict Liability Voting Law, a vague and racially discriminatory law that makes it a felony for North Carolina residents to vote if they...

2015 alum focuses on outreach, advocacy for elderly, rural Kentuckians — Louis D. Brandeis School of Law

In rural Kentucky, there is a critical need for legal services for elder victims of abuse and exploitation. University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law alum and 2020 Equal Justice Works Fellow is helping to bring more visibility to this issue through direct legal representation and community outreach.

Since the coronavirus pandemic has taken hold, lawyers have had to turn to technology when serving their clients. But for Andrew Lakin, whose client base is elderly, rural Kentuckians, technology isn't always an easy solution.

Remote Court Procedures Can Help Domestic Abuse Victims - Law360

"The coronavirus pandemic has had a tremendous impact on court systems in the United States, forcing courts to close their physical doors or postpone hearings to prevent the spread of the virus. Courts have been forced to design new procedures for filing and processing cases remotely and to adopt technology that allows for virtual hearings.

As a result of these new procedures, court systems—intentionally or unintentionally—have adopted more trauma-sensitive processes. Using the DC Superior Court as a case study reveals some of the ways that courts have adapted to provide trauma-sensitive options for survivors of domestic violence."

Read the full article by 2019 Fellow Ashley Carter and Richard Kelley of DC Volunteer Lawyers Project.

Courts have recently adopted remote procedures to make domestic violence victims feel safer during the COVID-19 crisis, but they should consider preserving these trauma-sensitive adaptations post-pandemic as well, say Ashley Carter and Richard Kelley at the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project.

Activists help formerly incarcerated Floridians vote by paying fees

Many community members with felony records who have completed their sentence do not know that they are able to restore their right to vote. 2019 Fellow Mitchell Brown is trying to disrupt this voter disenfranchisement.

“Many states across the country, in order to have your right to vote restored, you have to pay all your fines, fees, and restitution, because the state considers that a part of your sentence,” said Mitchell.

And Florida isn’t the only state where this is happening.

“I haven’t been convicted... My voice should be heard, even from the incarcerated state," says Frank Baker, a 43-year-old detainee in Texas’ Harris County Jail.

Preventing Jail-based Voting Disenfranchisement - Equal Justice Works

In America's prison system, the roughly half a million people in pretrial detention and the approximately 250,000 people serving out misdemeanor convictions are eligible to vote—though many don't realize it.

"Jailed voters have been caught up in systems that are disempowering by design," said 2019 Fellow Dana Paikowsky. Voting allows them "an opportunity to reclaim their power, connect with their community, and assert for the world that their voice matters." https://www.equaljusticeworks.org/news/preventing-jail-based-voting-disenfranchisement/

The Tenants Who Evicted Their Landlord

Amid mass unemployment and rising evictions due to the pandemic, tenants around the country are mobilizing through rent strikes and other collective actions. The Corcoran Five, a group of Minneapolis renters, banded together to buy their homes from a major landlord—and succeeded.

During early March eviction proceedings, Luke Grundman, 2009 Equal Justice Works Fellow and lawyer for Corcoran Five member Chloé Jackson, argued, "This case is about a tenant facing eviction because she stood up for herself.”

Covid-19 has revealed the depths of the nation’s rental housing crisis — but a group of Minneapolis tenants has shown that a different future is possible.

Technology Adoption around the Criminal Justice System is a Tightrope - Equal Justice Works

Pre-trial risk assessment technology was supposed to increase access-to-justice in the bail system. In reality, most adopted tech tools are causing harm and carrying biases, which are often unrecognized and unregulated.
"Automated technology in the criminal justice system has become an industry where gaps in access to justice are encoded and exacerbated," said 2019 Fellow Ben Winters, hosted by Electronic Privacy Information Center.

Equal Justice Works Fellow Ben Winters describes the fine line between helpful and harmful advancements in legal technology.

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.
