Deaths in police custody & Abby Martin on refugee ban fallout

On this episode of America’s Lawyer, attorney, Mike Papantonio, examines the numerous civilian deaths that have taken place in police custody over the past few years and speaks with attorney Mark O’Mara about the case of Matthew Ajibade, who died after being tased while strapped to a restraining chair. Mike then talks to creator and host of The Empire Files, Abby Martin, about what’s really behind Trump’s immigration and refugee ban and what we should expect from future legal fights over the issue. Mike is then joined by Farron Cousins, Executive Editor of The Trial Lawyer Magazine, about the hidden water crisis impacting communities across the U.S. America’s Lawyer wraps up the show by highlighting a class action lawsuit victory against New York City for filing thousands of illegal summonses.
