  • David Singleton-Ohio Justice and Policy Center-“Humanizing the Other: The Tyra Patterson Story”

    “Humanizing the Other: The Tyra Patterson Story” Speaker: David Singleton, Executive Director Ohio Justice and Policy Center, Executive Director 5432 Any Street West, Townsville, State 54321 Tel 555.543.5432 Fax 555.543.5433 WWW.ADATUM.COM For the past 19 years, Tyra Patterson has been incarcerated in the Ohio prison for aggravated murder and robbery, crimes Ohio’s former Attorney General Jim Petro says she likely did not commit. At trial, Tyra’s defense was ineffectual. Her lawyers refused to introduce the 911 call she had made, and discouraged her from testifying because she, in their words, “talked like she was from the ghetto” and would not be understood by the jury. Not surprisingly the jury convicted her. The Ohio Justice & Policy Center has been handling Tyra’s case for over a year in an effort to get her clemency. After hearing the 911 call, six of the trial jurors submitted affidavits saying that they would likely not have convicted Tyra had that evidence come out at the trial.. Please join us for lunch to learn more about this case and David Singleton’s work on obtaining clemency for Tyra Patterson. Please RSVP to Symplicity by Tuesday, March 3. If you would like lunch

  • King v. Burwell: Obamacare in the Supreme Court (Again)

    Once again, the Supreme Court is set to examine the Affordable Care Act. After surviving a constitutional attack, the statute now faces a challenge based on its own words. Challengers claim that the plain language of the statute makes subsidies (a critical part of the ACA) unavailable on federally facilitated insurance exchanges. A panel of professors will discuss the case from the perspective of health law, tax law, statutory interpretation, and administrative law.
