Jay Harvey, an Austin personal injury lawyer and current president of the Texas Trial Lawyer’s Association, has a letter to the editor in today’s paper supporting the Pakistani lawyers who are standing up for the rule of law.
There have been demonstrations all over the country in support of the lawyers, including demonstrations in New York and Washington D.C., but the response here has been a bit disappointing. It is one thing for those of us in the law to pat ourselves on the back saying that we do what we do, in many instances, to help people. But to demonstrate, knowing that you are likely to be arrested, be separated from your family, and even be tortured, is quite another commitment. And yet, little has been heard about it from the Texas bar. One of the few things that I have heard is a story from the Tex Parte blog talking about the personal effect this issue has had on one Dallas lawyer.
