The Veterans Education Challenge: Our Fight to Support Student Veterans
Huffington Post - 3 months
In the aftermath of Veterans Day 2016, I have been left to reflect on the successes of the first year of our Veterans Education Challenge. For those unfamiliar, the Veterans Education Challenge (VEC) is a fundraising campaign aimed at creating scholarships for student veterans who cannot complete their education due to the shortcomings of the current G.I. Bill. Veterans at colleges across the country are struggling to finance the completion of their education despite having already attended their collegiate institution for several years. On November 12th, we started to see the impact of the VEC as the first round of scholarships were awarded to three University of Maryland scholars: Marine veteran Colton Treadway, and US Army veterans Jose Githens and Charles Turner. I was compelled to initiate the VEC after witnessing how education can be an extreme financial burden for student veterans. Many veterans have families who depend on their success, with 15% being single parents, 46% havi ...

Alleged Brady Violations Reopen 27-Year-Old D.C. Homicide Case
The Blog of Legal Times - almost 5 years
Updated at 3:37 p.m. Nearly three decades after Catherine Fuller was murdered in a Northeast Washington alley, a District of Columbia Superior Court judge is being asked to take a second look at the convictions of a group of men charged in the crime. Fuller, 48, was found beaten to death and sodomized on Oct. 1, 1984, in an alley off of the corner of H and 8th Streets. Following a high-profile investigation that netted more than a dozen suspects and, according to reports from the time, put the entire city on edge, a Superior Court jury convicted eight men in 1985. In 2010, however, attorneys for seven of the defendants - the eighth died in jail - moved to reopen the case, claiming they had reason to believe prosecutors with the U.S. attorney's office in D.C. withheld key evidence, including testimony from witnesses that put two other men on the scene as possible suspects. The U.S. attorney's office has defended its handling of the case. Superior Court Judge Frederick Weisbe ...
