3 Legal Clinic for the Homeless, Neighborhood Entrepreneur Law Project (New York), and Droits d Urgence (Paris). Dechert attorneys handle a wide variety of issues for many different nonprofit organizations, including leases, employment issues, incorporation and application for tax exempt status, tax, trademark and copyright matters. List up to three pro bono matters that are highlights (e.g., a Supreme Court case). Please limit your answer to a short paragraph per matter. Groundbreaking Victory in Wisconsin Voter ID Case: Dechert prevailed on behalf of Wisconsin voters in a judgment handed down in April in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. Our team obtained a final judgment enjoining Wisconsin s voter photo ID law, considered one of the strictest voter ID laws in the country, following a twoweek trial held in November In 2011, Wisconsin passed the law requiring certain types of photo ID in order to vote. A group of individuals who would be unable to vote because they lacked acceptable photo ID challenged the law as an unconstitutional violation of the equal protection clause and as a violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. Dechert attorneys built a fact-intensive case, bolstered by experts and statistics, that demonstrated that hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin voters in particular lower-income and minority voters as well as the elderly, students, veterans, people with disabilities, and homeless voters would be unfairly burdened by this restrictive law because they lacked acceptable photo ID and at least one of the underlying documents (typically their birth certificates) needed to obtain ID. The case was tried jointly with lawyers from the ACLU Voting Rights Project, the ACLU of Wisconsin, and the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty. Providing Educational Stability for Children with Autism: On behalf of a class parents of children with autism (and co-counseling with PILCOP), Dechert challenged the Philadelphia School District s upper leveling process by which it transferred the children from school to school without adequate notice to or input from parents. On June 3, 2014, the district court approved a settlement in the matter. The settlement followed on the heels of several years of litigation and a successful summary judgment motion where the Court ruled that this procedure violated the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), noting that an unplanned transition for children with autism is likely to impact their learning negatively. The Court ordered the school district to alter its upper-leveling process for children with autism to provide prior written notice and a level of parental participation that complies with the procedural requirements under the IDEA. The settlement included a number of important components, including mandating that advance notice of any potential transfer decision be provided to parents at least twice prior to the next school year, ensuring that parents have an opportunity to provide input into any potential transfer decision. Parents also retained the right to object to a transfer decision through the normal due process hearing procedures. The case received significant press and was considered an enormous victory for children with disabilities in Philadelphia. Arguing for Artistic Freedom Through Rap Lyrics: A team of Dechert attorneys filed a brief on behalf of the ACLU of New Jersey, arguing that the First Amendment requires courts to conduct an analysis before admitting rap lyrics written by a defendant as evidence in his attempted murder trial. In the case of State v. Skinner, the trial court admitted into evidence thirteen pages of rap lyrics written by Skinner prior to the crime as evidence of his motive and intent, even though the lyrics had no connection to the crime with which Skinner was charged. Skinner was convicted, and appealed to the New Jersey Appellate Division, which reversed the conviction on a 2 1 vote. The State appealed to the New Jersey Supreme Court and the New Jersey ACLU, represented by Dechert, was granted amicus curiae status. Dechert s amicus brief argued that admission of the lyrics as evidence in a criminal proceeding could have a chilling effect on free expression rights because they are fictional and artistic expressions of a political and social commentary nature. Noting that courts around the country have admitted gangsta rap lyrics into evidence, Dechert argued that this is cruelly ironic, because gangsta rap had evolved as a response to the mass incarceration of the black male population in the inner cities, and is now being used to perpetuate the vicious cycle of arrest, incarceration, arrest, incarceration. The brief suggested that the court adopt a more stringent set of standards to guide courts in admitting into evidence a criminal defendant s fictional, artistic expressions. In August 2013, the New Jersey Supreme Court found in favor of Skinner, citing that there was no evidence that the rap lyrics, although filled with graphically violent images, were connected with the crime charged. The Court advised not to admit such evidence representing artistic expressions, including those of social commentary, unless there is a clear connection between the expressions and the crime charged and its probative value outweighs its prejudicial impact.
