HSR Team to Go to Trial in Charly "Africa" Keunang Shooting Case

Tuesday May 1, 2018, HSR attorneys Josh Piovia-Scott, Dan Stormer, and Shaleen Shanbhag will go to trial in federal court in Los Angeles, representing the family of Charly "Africa" Keunang, a homeless African man shot by the LAPD in March 2015.

HSR Attorney Dan Stormer Argues Before Ninth Circuit in Landmark Case, Dogan v. Barak

On April 12, 2018, Dan Stormer argued before the Ninth Circuit court of appeals in the landmark case Dogan v. Barak. In Dogan, the surviving parents of Furkan Dogan--an 18-year old American humanitarian activist murdered by the Israeli military during its 2010 attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla--seek to hold to account then-Minister of Defense Ehud Barak for these violations of international human rights. Attorneys for Defendant Barak and the U.S. Government urged the court to close its doors to Furkan's parents by claiming that foreign government officials are immune for all "official acts," while Dan Stormer highlighted Ninth Circuit precedent establishing that torture and extrajudicial killing can never be official acts. The panel, consisting of Judges Carlos Bea, Mary Murguia, and Stanley Bastian, will likely issue its Opinion in the coming months.
