LM Stands With Utah Sexual Assault Survivors Filing a Precedent-Setting Petition

Yesterday, October 16, 2018, four sexual assault victims – Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2, Jane Doe 3, and Jane Doe 4 – filed a petition in the Utah Supreme Court, asking the Court to appoint a prosecutor to file criminal charges in their cases. Represented by Professor Paul Cassell of the Utah Appellate Clinic (of the S.J.
