Federal Defender Mike Filipovic and former Federal Defender Tom Hillier co-authored an article, which was published in the Seattle Times. Filipovic and Hillier wrote in support of four NFL players, including Seattle Seahawks player, Doug Baldwin, who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times. The players' article was in response to President Trump's invitation to provide him with the names of federal prisoners “unfairly treated by the justice system” and, if he agreed, he would pardon them. Filipovic and Hillier wrote in support of releasing non-violent, aging drug offenders. You can read the article here.
