an amicus brief urging the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to uphold the constitutionality of G.L. c. 258E.The Mintz Levin team argued that the law is appropriately tailored to protect victims of stalking, sexual assault, and harassment without impinging on constitutionally protected First Amendment rights. Adopting similar reasoning, the Supreme Judicial Court held, among other things, that G.L. c. 258E is not unconstitutionally overbroad because it limits the scope of the prohibited speech to“fighting words”and“true threats.” Domestic Violence Support Services: Help for Nonprofit Services Providers In connection with our work on behalf of victims of domestic violence, a team of Mintz Levin attorneys led by Sue Finegan, John Koss, and Jamie Arterton analyzed issues of privacy, information governance, and records management on behalf of rape crisis counseling centers, domestic violence shelters, and legal services providers. Recent work in this area includes researching the status of privilege and disclosure requirements in various jurisdictions and marrying each provider’s records management policies to those legal requirements, and advising centers on compliance with reporting obligations and data management best practices. Economic Justice Project The Economic Justice Project provides Mintz Levin’s transactional attorneys with opportunities to use their skills and resources to help low-income entrepreneurs who are startingorexpandingsmallbusinesseslocatedinunderserved communities in Greater Boston. Twice a year, the attorneys involved with the Economic Justice Project conduct pro bono clinics in partnership with Chelsea Neighborhood Developers that focus on the issues facing small businesses. Some of the entrepreneurs with whom the attorneys meet in Chelsea go on to become pro bono clients, whose needs typically include assistance with a range of issues relating to entity formation, employment, real estate, and intellectual property protection. At one clinic in 2004, Mintz Levin met Patricia Agnello. A classic independent inventor with a passion for coffee, Patricia was convinced her innovation—a durable, travel-friendly, lightweight mug with a ceramic liner that actually keeps the beverage hot and doesn’t pollute the taste—was one of a kind and warranted patent protection. Our pro bono team agreed, and first-year Associates Chris Milliken and Kathy Chelini submitted a patent application to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In 2006, attorney Matt Pavao began patent prosecution with assistance from attorney Dan Clarke and Technology Specialist Katherine Miller and submitted numerous written rebuttals to the USPTO rejections. “Five years later,” Matt says, “the final claim language and evidence of the superior properties provided by the invention”allowed the USPTO to grant a patent. Patricia is now busy filling online orders for her CeramaMug™. Attorney Tavis Morello and Project Analyst Corey Goerdt coordinated the project in 2011. Other participants included attorneys Katherine Weir, Vita Wilson, Charlotte Edelman, Rachel Irving, Jonathan Ursprung, Pam Greene, Poonam Patidar, and Claudia Torres, and Project Analysts Chris Termyn, Anagha Prasad, and Billy Najam. EdLaw Project The EdLaw Project, a collaborative initiative of the Children’s Law Center of Massachusetts and the Youth Advocacy Department of the Committee for Public Counsel Services, was created to ensure and enforce every child’s right to a quality education. Under the guidance of the EdLaw Project, attorney Rob Sheridan and Project Analyst NatalieYoung have undertaken research to establish the foundation for the right to counsel or education advocacy in school exclusion cases.
