Home is Here NOLA, Immigration Services and Legal Advocacy, and Louisiana Advocates for Immigrants in Detention, three local immigrant rights organizations, are challenging subpoenas from Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, who is trying to force the organizations to turn over confidential information about their clients through the third-party subpoenas. In a Motion to Quash filed in federal court, the organizations say the “unduly burdensome” subpoenas threaten attorney-client privilege, freedom of association, and religious freedom. Disclosure of the requested information would harm the organizations, their clients, and the broader community. In addition to working with our co-counsel, we have also been partnering on this matter with Jeremy Jong of Al Otro Lado.
