IJ attorneys Anya Bidwell and Dan Alban with IJ client Phil Parhamovich outside the Wyoming courtroom where they successfully argued (on Dec. 1) that Phil’s $91,800 in life savings should be returned to him. It was seized in March by Wyoming law enforcement during a traffic stop on I-80 near Cheyenne.
Today we argued before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of Missouri’s hairbraiders. The government forces them to take 1,500 hours of irrelevant cosmetology training just to braid hair. That’s unconstitutional. PICTURED: IJ staff and braiders after today’s argument.
