Vic Walczak: "Stay Out: Hazleton at Trial and on Appeal"
Lozano v. Hazleton is the first legal challenge to a local anti-illegal-immigrant ordinance. The ordinance was struck down by a federal district court in 2007, and the case is currently on appeal in the Third Circuit.
Witold "Vic" Walczak served as co-lead counsel in Lozano v. Hazleton, and has been the Legal Director for the ACLU-PA since 2004. Besides specializing in free-speech and religious-liberty cases, Vic has handled nationally significant cases involving challenges to widespread police misconduct, substandard public-defender services, and the Secret Service’s use of “protest zones” to shield former President Bush from demonstrators. In 2005, Vic was one of three lawyers who successfully tried Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, the first case challenging the teaching in public schools of “intelligent design."
This talk, which was recorded on February 23, 2008, was sponsored by the ACLU and introduced by Professor Adam Cox.
