Blog of the Legal Times
10.14.10The article quotes Michael Khalil’s arguments in a pro bono amicus representation before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on behalf of an inmate, Antoine Jones, who is seeking damages against an assistant U.S. attorney and the warden of the D.C. jail. Khalil said that Jones should not have been held in complete isolation indefinitely without a court order and that the prosecutor, Rachel Lieber, overstepped her bounds in directing the jail to isolate Jones in 2005. He argued the segregation amounted to punishment and that Jones was not afforded due process.
