Joyner v. Turner et al— This case seeks to end a long-standing racial discrimination policy of the Atlanta Police Department in which, at the rank of Lieutenant and higher, the person who is hired into a vacant high-ranking position must be the same race as the person who left the position. NDH has obtained the evidence that proves this pernicious practice is working to exclude races from certain positions within APD field operation zones.

Mejia-Mejia v ICE, et al— NDH’s first reunification case regarding Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy that led to unconstitutionally separating families at the border. We believe Ms. Mejia-Mejia deserves more than just being reunited with her son; she deserves to be compensated for the anguish that Trump’s policy caused. Consequently, NDH is litigating this case to clarify and/or change the law so that federal officials liable are held accountable for monetary damages in instances such as that perpetrated against Mejia-Mejia and her family. The case is being litigated in Washington, DC and is ongoing.

Paykina v. Lewin, et al— A case in which we are fighting to end the solitary confinement of juveniles with serious mental illness. This case challenges the State of New York’s policies of trying to justify 18-24 hours of lock down per day (with 2 hours of segregated yard time) as rehabilitation instead of calling it what it is: inhumane isolation.
