Law Firms That Police the Police

July 1, 2017, The American Lawyer

Benjamin Haley is quoted by The American Lawyer in an article highlighting ways in which law firms are shining a light on police departments and their practices. Commenting on Covington's representation of Reginald Adams, a former prisoner in New Orleans who spent 34 years in prison for the murder of a police officer's wife, Haley says, "These cases are important because police and prosecutors need to be held accountable for Brady violations." He adds, "If we don't seek to hold them accountable and shed light on the violations going forward, there's not an effective deterrent."
