In addition, the evening’s program will include a discussion of the doctrine with attorneys Wilson Brown III from Drinker Biddle and Reath LLP and Ben Wizner from the ACLU’s National Security Project. Wilson Brown’s efforts to vindicate three families victimized by the government’s improper claim of state secrets privilege in United States v. Reynolds are the subject of Pulitzer Prize-winner Barry Siegel’s 2008 book Claim of Privilege.
Ben Wizner has litigated several post-9/11 civil liberties cases in which the government has invoked the state secrets privilege, including Mohamed v. Jeppesen Dataplan, Inc., a suit against a private aviation services company for facilitating the CIA's rendition to torture of five Muslim men.
I hope that you will join us for this celebration!
