HSRR attorneys Dan Stormer and Reem Salahi have joined the legal defense team of the eleven University of California Irvine and Riverside students who were allegedly discriminatorily charged with two misdemeanor counts for peacefully protesting Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren. Despite being disciplined by their respective universities, the eleven students — dubbed “The Irvine 11” — now face criminal charges and possible sentenced incarceration. On the first date of arraignment, the legal defense team filed a motion to disqualify the Orange County District Attorney’s office on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct and discriminatory prosecution based on prejudicial statements made as well as evidence that the office illegally obtained the students’ privileged communications.
