On September 26, 2013, the Project honored the extraordinary commitments of volunteer lawyers at its 2013 Volunteer Recognition & Awards Event. Exceptional Service Awards were presented to law firms Lewis Roca Rothgerber; Carrington, Coleman, Sloman & Blumenthal; and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. The 2013 John Paul Stevens Guiding Hand of Counsel Award was presented to Denny LeBoeuf, former director of the ACLU Capital Punishment Project. Damon Thibodeaux, who was exonerated and released from Louisiana’s death row in September 2012, and his volunteer attorney Steven Z. Kaplan of Fredrikson & Byron delivered keynote remarks. Thank you to all of the supporters, sponsors, and volunteers who helped make our celebration memorable!
