Partners Alyssa Bell and Michael Schafler will lead the appeal to the Ninth Circuit of Dr. Mark Ridley-Thomas's conviction and sentence, alongside a team that includes Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of the Berkeley Law School and Paul Watford, former Ninth Circuit Judge and present Wilson Sonsini partner. Dean Chemerinsky explained that "this entire appellate team is honored and privileged to represent Dr. Ridley-Thomas in this important appeal, and we look forward to presenting our case to the Ninth Circuit. There are several grounds that we believe could warrant a reversal of his convictions or, at a minimum, a new trial."
