Our First Litigation Win!

I’m excited to tell you about yet another S.T.O.P. milestone: our first litigation win!
Working with our co-counsel at Shearman and Sterling, we sued on behalf of a man who was illegally fired from his job and targeted by the police. Just a few days ago, S.T.O.P. and Shearman were able to get a successful settlement. We secured thousands of dollars in compensation, and we got something our client wanted even more: an apology.
Cases like this show the power of S.T.O.P.’s virtual law firm model, harnessing partnerships with leading law firms to amplify our impact in court.  No one should see the courthouse door shut in their face because they can’t afford to pay; will you help keep justice accessible to all?
This was our first litigation win, but it won’t be our last. S.T.O.P. is already working with more than a dozen law firms to fight for privacy and civil rights. Our pro bono partnerships allow us to multiply the value of every donated dollar more than tenfold, recruiting some of New York’s most elite attorneys to work on behalf of our clients at no charge. Consider making a donation today to help us continue the fight for privacy.
