Cleveland Consent Decree Discussion to be Held at CSU Today

Posted By on Wed, Apr 8, 2015 at 11:24 AM

Confused by all this talk of a consent decree between the Cleveland Division of Police and the U.S. Department of Justice? Of course you are. Even Mayor Frank Jackson seems a little tepid when he discusses the matter at public hearings.

Today at 5 p.m., the American Constitution Society Northeast Ohio Chapter will join several other groups in hosting a public program that will explain the consent decree process. The event will be held in the Moot Court Room at the Cleveland-Marshall School of Law (1801 Euclid Ave.).

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Carole Rendon, who has been central to both the investigation and the current negotiations, and University of Pittsburgh Law Professor David Harris, former ACLU of Ohio board member and nationally recognized expert in police practices and racial profiling, will discuss the process in a conversation moderated by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Professor Jonathan Witmer-Rich.

The Norman S. Minor Bar Association, the ACLU of Ohio Foundation, and the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and its Alumni Association are joining the program as co-sponsors. This event is free.
