Congratulations to Attorney Jack Giordano on the recent publication of Civil Rights Litigation and Attorney Fees Annual Handbook. Attorney Giordano wrote chapter 6, which is entitled, “Video Evidence: Constitutional Concerns and Practical Considerations.” The chapter addresses various issues regarding video evidence, which has become of predominant importance for civil rights practitioners today. Mr. Giordano is of the mind that the recent repeated videos, whether captured by cell phones, government surveillance or various other third party cameras, has substantiated what civil rights advocates and attorneys have been saying for years. That is, widespread police abuse is prevalent throughout our country and continues to go uncorrected. Mr. Giordano considers constitutional issues pertaining to government video surveillance, practical evidence issues and logistical matters relating to extracting and acquiring video from third parties.
The handbook is published by Thomson Reuters in conjunction with The National Lawyers Guild and The National Police Accountability Project – two organizations our firm works closely with.
