Caplan Cobb is deeply honored to receive the 2023 Luminary Award from the Southern Center for Human Rights. The award will be presented on May 9th, 2023 at the Southern Center’s Justice Taking Root event.
The Southern Center for Human Rights made this statement when it announced Caplan Cobb as the recipient of the 2023 Luminary Award:
“With this award, we pay tribute to Caplan Cobb’s extraordinary contributions to justice and fairness. We uplift the firm’s work in State of Georgia v. Federal Defender, which enjoined the State from executing Virgil Presnell and others, and the firm’s amazing victory on behalf of incarcerated people and their loved ones through their settlement in a nationwide consumer class action against prison telephone company Global Tel*Link (GTL).”
The Southern Center’s Justice Taking Root event on May 9th will also honor The Merchant Firm, which will be receiving the 2023 Vanguard Award.
