Five Firms Going Above and Beyond on Pro Bono

May 8, 2018, The AmLaw Litigation Daily

The AmLaw Litigation Daily highlights Covington’s work alongside the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Center, and prisoners’ rights litigator, Elizabeth Alexander, regarding a class action that was filed in the Southern District of Mississippi on behalf of the East Mississippi Correctional Facility’s prisoners, 80 percent of whom are mentally ill. “Prisoners suffer irreparable harm that can make it even more difficult to re-enter society, in addition to worsened medical conditions that could have been treated, mental illnesses that have grown far worse, and psychological damage from being assaulted,” says Erin Monju, a member of the Covington pro bono team.

The team is led by Gretchen Hoff Varner and Mark Gimbel, and also includes Erin Monju, and Anna Han.
