“Rule of Law: Criminal Remedies” at the Eradicate Hate Global SummitOn October 18, 2021 by Schnader
EVENT DATE: October 18, 2021
Hon. Timothy K. Lewis presented a session about “Rule of Law: Criminal Remedies,” as part of the Eradicate Hate Global Summit on October 18, 2021. Lewis, co-chair of Schnader’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Group, also served on the Summit’s Steering Committee.
The session about “Rule of Law: Criminal Remedies” explored the numerous prosecutions of terrorism and hate crimes conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice. The panelists discussed the distinct and disaggregated legal tools used in this effort, as well as the civil rights and liberties considerations that these prosecutions raise.
The Eradicate Hate Global Summit was born out of the Tree of Life massacre that took place in Pittsburgh in October 2018, motivated by anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant hatred resulting in the largest loss of life in an anti-Semitic event in U.S. history. Rather than remain victims of hate, the Summit resolved to convert what happened into the most significant anti-hate rule of law initiative in the world and, to that end, are bringing together multi-disciplinary global experts and leaders who are committed to the eradication of hate speech and violent extremism—in all its forms —around the world.
