Another One Bites the Dust (Thanks Covington)

April 16, 2018, The Am Law Litigation Daily

The Am Law Litigation Daily highlights a victory on behalf of the city of Los Angeles following U.S. District Judge Manuel Real's decision to enjoin an attempt by the Justice Department to link funding for community-oriented policing to cooperation with federal law enforcement agencies on immigration enforcement. Mitch Kamin, who was a member of the Covington team representing the city of Los Angeles in its challenge to the new funding conditions, says the plaintiffs were “thrilled [Real] accepted all our arguments.” As getting a national injunction, Kamin says it was “the only way to correct the uneven playing field.” He notes that it would have done little good to change the policy just for Los Angeles, but leave it untouched for the rest of the country.

The team also included Beth Brinkmann, David Zionts, Neema Sahni, Ivano Ventresca, and Mónica Ramírez Almadani.
