Lives in the Law: David Guillory and Tim Garrigan on Fighting for Justice in East Texas
Guillory and Garrigan will discuss their class action accusing the City of Tenaha and Shelby County in East Texas of illegally seizing money and property from black and Latino motorists passing through the town. The case, which was successfully settled last year, received national exposure when it was featured in the recent article “Taken” in The New Yorker.
The one-hour talk in the law school’s Eidman Courtroom will begin at 11:45 a.m. and is open to the public. Lunch with the speakers at 12:45 p.m. is limited to law students.
