The First Amendment Clinics at Arizona State University and Cornell law schools secured access last week to in-person interviews with the incarcerated civil rights leader Jamil Al-Amin, formerly H. Rap Brown, on behalf of scholar and journalist Dr. Arun Kundnani.
A decision in a defamation case argued primarily by a student in Cornell Law School’s First Amendment Clinic is one of the first in New York state court to address a legal question spurred by recent legislative changes strengthening free speech protections.
The Clinic filed the against Los Angeles County, alleging that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department violated a student journalist’s First and Fourth Amendment rights by wrongfully arresting him at a Black Lives Matter protest, confiscating his equipment, and losing his camera memory card containing two years of work.
The clinic scored a victory December 18 when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department released a Cal State Long Beach student journalist’s iPhone that had been seized by deputies and held for three months.
