Disability Rights Legal Center Honors Munger Tolles
Munger, Tolles & Olson received the 2010 Counsel of the Year Award at the Disability Rights Legal Center’s Annual Gala on November 18, 2010. The honor was in recognition of Munger Tolles’ extensive pro bono work on disability matters. Recently, Munger Tolles attorneys Robert Dell Angelo and Bethany Kristovich and former attorney Kristina Wilson assisted the DRLC with the case Lauderdale v. City of Long Beach, a matter involving injunctive relief for a class composed of the deaf and hard of hearing community. The case was notable for promoting cutting edge technology to facilitate communication with the hearing impaired. The Disability Rights Legal Center (DRLC) works to promote the rights of people with disabilities and the public interest in and awareness of those rights by providing legal and related services.
