County of El Paso, Texas, and Border Network for Human Rights
Stuart Gerson has partnered with Laurence H. Tribe and others, including a team from Epstein Becker Green, on a pro bono effort to challenge, on behalf of the County of El Paso, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights, President Trump’s national emergency declaration on the border wall. For this effort, Stuart was recognized as one of the “Litigators of the Week” by The American Lawyer, in October 2019. In the accompanying article, Stuart explains:
In October 2019, the Western District of Texas issued a summary judgment in favor of the plaintiffs, enjoining the administration from border barrier construction. The litigation is ongoing.
