ACS Oregon and Washington: April Case Discussion
Please join the ACS Oregon and Washington State Lawyer Chapters for their monthly interactive discussion group with other local progressive lawyers about cases of regional or national significance. This month we will be discussing the Oregon Supreme Court's decision from December 2022 in Watkins v. Ackley, 370 Or 604 (2022). This decision retroactively applied the US Supreme Court's decision in Ramos v. Louisiana, invalidating hundreds of felony convictions obtained under a 1934 law designed to exclude people of color from meaningful participation in the justice system. The text of the opinion can be found here.
