The NLG National Office is excited to announce a new resource now available on our website called NLG Scholars -- a list of our members who are law school professors, past NLG presidents, and practitioners with decades of experience. Please take a look and keep this list in mind when you need speakers for events and conferences, legal experts to quote in media outlets, or mentors for our students and recent grads.
Several grassroots and legal organizations filed an "amicus" brief Wednesday in support of a widely watched lawsuit challenging the military's domestic spying against antiwar activists in the Pacific Northwest. The case Panagacos v. Towery is currently on appeal before the Ninth Circuit and, because of the Army's strenuous objection to public disclosure of documents, plaintiffs were forced to file their appeal brief last August under seal. The Ninth Circuit has not yet announced a date for oral arguments, but is expected to do so in the next few weeks.
