A team of Munger Tolles litigators representing LGBT advocacy group Equality California successfully defended Senate Bill 1172, which prohibits state-licensed therapists from engaging in sexual orientation change efforts (“SOCE”) on minor patients.
Alleged street gang members must be afforded hearings and other due process protections before their liberties are curtailed by civil injunctions, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled on November 5, 2013.
Munger, Tolles & Olson, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the ACLU of Northern California are representing four servicewomen and the Service Women’s Action Network in challenging the Defense Department’s policy barring women from serving in – or even applying for – many tens of thousands of combat-related positions.
Munger, Tolles & Olson played a major role in the Citizens’ Commission on Jail Violence investigating violence in the Los Angeles County jails. Munger Tolles’ Tamerlin Godley (pictured above) served as deputy general counsel to the commission.
