De-Briefing a SCOTUS Argument: Tanvir v. Tanzin - The 'No Fly List' Case


Add to My Calendar Thursday, October 15, 2020 5:15pm to 6:15pm


Join the Debevoise Muslim Affinity Group, CUNY CLEAR, the Muslim Bar Association of New York, Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP, and the Center for the Constitutional Rights for a discussion of Tanzin v. Tanvir, which was filed on behalf of American Muslim men who were placed or kept on the No-Fly List by the FBI in retaliation for their refusal to spy on their Muslim communities. The case asks the simple question: can government officials be held accountable when they coerce people to become informants and retaliate against them when they refuse?

We will hear from Ramzi Kassem, Director of CLEAR and Professor at CUNY Law School, who argued the case on October 6th before the Supreme Court of the United States. Diala Shamas, Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, Jennifer Cowan, Pro Bono Counsel at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, and Amir Badat, Associate at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP will also discuss their roles as co-counsel and amici curiae to the litigation.

RSVP for the event here.
