Rachel Lederman in the news as Standing Rock criminal cases wrap up

Rachel is quoted in a major AP piece on Water Protector Legal Collective. WPLC has just wrapped up almost 850 criminal cases stemming from the indigenous-led resistance to the Dakota Access oil pipeline at Standing Rock in 2016-2017. Regarding the ongoing civil rights lawsuit over law enforcement violence against the water protectors, “We are determined to press on for justice, no matter how long it takes,” said legal collective board member Rachel Lederman, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs.
The same article ran in the Washington Post, MN Star Tribune, ABC News, CBS News, US News, Seattle Times, Tampa Bay Times, and local and regional news outlets across the country.
