Oral Arguments in Aref v. Holder (CMU case)


Add to My Calendar Tuesday, March 15, 2016 9:30am


United States Court of Appeals - DC Circuit
333 Constitution Avenue, NW, Courtroom 31
Washington, DC 20001

Please pack the court for oral arguments in Aref v. Holder, CCR’s case challenging the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ “Communication Management Units.” The CMUs are experimental prison units that impose severe restrictions on prisoners’ communications, both within the prison and with the outside world. Our appeal argues that the federal government places and retains people in the CMUs arbitrarily, without due process, and in retaliation for protected speech and religious practice.

On Tuesday, March 15th, CCR Senior Staff Attorney Rachel Meeropol will be in court, arguing on behalf of former CMU prisoners. You can invite others to the argument using our Facebook event page.

Learn more about the CMUs here, and the case here.

*We advise showing up 30-60 minutes early to allow time to get through security. ID is also recommended.
