January 2020

Chapman served as pro bono counsel to Children’s Rights to advocate for and protect vulnerable children in its recent amicus brief in support of plaintiff-appellees. On January 28, Children’s Rights filed an amicus brief with eight other leading child welfare organizations before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, opposing proposed regulations that attempt to overturn the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement’s protections for immigrant children and would allow indefinite detention of children and families. Chapman served as pro bono counsel for Children’s Rights’ earlier amicus brief challenging the regulations, which was filed with a district court on August 30, 2019.
