IJ wishes to thank HAN members Damian Najman (LSC 03) and Rachel Clark (LSC 96) for critical assistance on recent IJ projects:

Damian Najman, a 3L at Columbia Law School, assisted in IJs litigation defending Floridas Opportunity Scholarship Program by translating documents into Spanish for review by parents in Miami benefiting from the school choice program.

Rachel Clark, currently an associate with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in Washington, D.C., drafted an amicus brief for the Institute for Justice in an eminent domain abuse case before the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The brief argues that a trial court ruling holding that property owners may not challenge a private developers demand for cash payment in exchange for not exercising the governmental power of eminent domain must be overturned.
