Anthony V. Salerno and David M. Murphy's "Jailhouse Call" in the September issue of Los Angeles Lawyer offers guidance to attorneys who do not practice criminal defense law on what to do when a client calls from jail.
Len Aslanian worked as a law clerk with the HIV & AIDS Legal Services Alliance (HALSA) of Los Angeles on discrimination and privacy issues and was one of only eight students from across the country honored by Equal Justice Works as a Summer Corp Standout. He describes his creative legal work: "We are considering charging a certain employer with violations of multiple sections of the California Civil Code that have rarely been litigated, some less than a dozen times, and never in the context of HIV discrimination. If we are successful, we will help to set new precedent that future victims of civil rights violations can draw upon."
Just a reminder: Lawyers, do not call a judge an "evil, unfair witch" on your blog.
