NARSOL IN ACTION: National litigation update

Date of Event: March 2, 2020

Time: 7:00 to 10.00 Eastern

NARSOL will have a three-hour conference call on March 2nd beginning at 7:00 pm eastern time. We will be discussing what’s likely to happen next in three important cases pending in Michigan, Georgia and New Mexico.

Hour 1:  We will be discussing the recent decision in Michigan which will soon bar that state from enforcing SORA on those whose conduct occurred prior to 2011. In addition, the court’s final order will severely limit enforcement of various provisions of SORA on the remaining registrants. Paul Reingold from the University of Michigan School of Law will be with us to explain the ramifications and potential legislative action.

Hour 2:  Attorney Mark Yurachek will be with us to discuss the Butts County Sheriff’s appeal of the favorable ruling we won last October regarding the placement of signs at Halloween. As Sheriff Long had vowed, he appealed and the case is now pending in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. NARSOL and the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL) will be joining forces in support of Judge Treadwell’s decision. See press release.

Hour 3:  Attorney Ashley Cloud from New Mexico’s Liberty & Justice Coalition will be discussing LJC’s pending lawsuit for those with out of state convictions and other challenges which will be initiated in 2020.

Live Stream Option

We also are going to live stream the call on You Tube. There won’t be any video, just an audio stream, so you can try this if you’d rather not call in. You can use your Roku or ChromeCast and have the call played over your TV.
