B&W Client Writes About “Free-Speech-Affirming Settlement” in Tikkun Magazine

MAY 30, 2013

In 2011 and 2012, Bernabei & Wachtel represented Rae Abileah in her claims arising from her protest at the U.S. Capitol during a speech to a joint session of Congress. Rae has now written about that experience, and some interesting subsequent developments, in the April 2013 issue of Tikkun. She described how the resolution of her lawsuit was a major step forward, since "I have found this joint, free-speech-affirming settlement to be unexpectedly powerful and comforting. It is a statement based in the basic humanity of both my assailant and myself."
