Cody Wofsy Secures Precedent-Setting Appellate Court Ruling

Former Fellow Cody Wofsy (’15) secured a favorable decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit holding for the first time that the misuse of material witness warrants was unconstitutional. In a New York Times story about the ruling (“Court Warns City About Misuse of Material Witness Warrants,” June 21), Cody said, “The court was clearly saying that you can’t arrest someone on a material witness warrant and hold them just to pressure them for information.”
