Latest From ACLU of Washington

The latest content and updates from the ACLU of Washington website.

In 2010, a court rule was adopted (with the support of the ACLU and numerous access to justice organizations) authorizing waiver of all filing fees and surcharges for indigent litigants (GR 34).

The ACLU-WA filed a motion & proposed amicus brief in the State of Washington’s lawsuit challenging Pres. Trump’s recent Executive Order, arguing that the Order destabilizes and fundamentally alters the lives of many Washington residents & their families
We argue that this misuse of obstruction charges has a chilling effect on the exercise of individual rights in interactions with the police. We asked the court to limit interpretation of the statute in order to protect constitutional rights.
The brief details how white jurors paused in answering questions too, but their pause was considered “thoughtfulness” while the African American juror’s pause was used against her.
