A Broken Promise in Texas: Race, the Death Penalty and the Duane Buck Case
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
LDF attorneys Debo Adegbile, Associate Director-Counsel and Director of Litigation, and Joshua Civin, Assistant Counsel for the Economic Justice and Education Practice Groups, coauthored an issue brief for the American Constitution Society examining the effect of the recent Supreme Court decisions in Iqbal and Twombly on civil rights cases. The issue brief draws upon the testimony given last year by LDF President and Director-Counsel John Payton before the Senate Judiciary Committee and Debo Adegbile before the House Judiciary Committee, and expands the analysis of the impact that these cases have had on civil rights litigation.
