STANDING UP FOR FREE SPEECH IN THE COURTROOM
Nov. 10, 2015
Oren Nimni, founding partner of Community Law Office,* is in the news! During jury selection for a criminal case in Worcester, where Oren is representing one of a group of Black Lives Matter activists, the judge took issue with one of the activist’s Black Lives Matter sweatshirt. The judge said that the Black Lives Matter message is unfair to the Commonwealth – Oren wasn’t having it. If the police can wear their uniforms in the court room, he said, the activists should be able to wear clothes that say Black Lives Matter. The rest of us at Community Law Office agree, and we’re proud to have Oren on our team.
