Guantanamo Detainees’ Attorney to Speak at Women’s Bar Event

           

Kristine Huskey, an attorney who represented the detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will speak to the NH Women’s Bar Association on Tuesday, Feb. 27 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Wiggin and Nourie, 670 Commercial St., Manchester.

           

Huskey is a practitioner-in-residence in the International Human Rights Law Clinic at American University Washington College of Law.  Before that, she was with the international litigation group at Shearman & Sterling in New York City. While at Shearman & Sterling, Huskey was part of the legal team representing detainees at Guantanamo being held by the U.S. government as suspected terrorists. As a key member of that team, she interviewed detainees, traveled to Kuwait to interview their family members and ultimately represented the detainees in Rasul v. Bush, which went before the US Supreme Court. The case won the right of the detainees to challenge their detentions in federal court.

           

Huskey will be discussing her experiences as a woman attorney in the representation of the detainees and in particular how she was able to build relationships with her clients and effectively represent them before the courts.

           

This event is open to all.  Admission is $25 for NHWBA members and $35 for non-members.  The event includes a wine and cheese reception with the speaker.  Please RSVP to Katherine Brown at katherinel.brown@libertymutual.com or 603-623-8413.

 

 

 

 

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
