Our country’s criminal justice policies intersect with voting rights through felony disenfranchisement. Voting is a fundamental right and the cornerstone of democracy. Yet over 5 million U.S. citizens are denied the right to vote due to a previous conviction, even though many of them have returned to their communities or completed their full sentence. This CLE will first provide a definition of felony disenfranchisement and the process of rights restoration. We will then summarize felony disenfranchisement policies and their practical effect on our democracy. The course will then discuss case law on felony disenfranchisement and focus on the difficulty of protecting the voting rights of those with a prior conviction in federal courts. We will then turn to state court challenges to felony disenfranchisement and differing state policies on rights restoration. We will end with a discussion of developing litigation strategies, and opportunities for protecting the right to vote of citizens with a conviction through advocacy.
Disabled tenants have rights to reasonable accommodations throughout the United States. Failing to honor those rights can quickly cause a landlord, property manager, and real estate broker to face a six figure lawsuit. Now, the State of New York has stepped it up a notch by requiring landlords, property managers, and real estate brokers to provide a written notice to all tenants and prospective tenants about their rights. The notice explains which accommodations are available under law, how to request an accommodation, and how to bring a claim for discrimination if an accommmodation is wrongfully denied. This course will get you up to speed with the statutory and regulatory framework under which the NYS notice exists while offering you a full compliance protocol for your clients to follow. It will also show you how to leverage a defendant's failure to give the notice in a plaintiff's failure-to-accommodate discrimination case so that you can properly advise tenants who have faced discrimination.
