Litigator of the Week Runners-Up and Shout Outs

Associate Jordan Greene and partner Kasdin Mitchell were recognized as runners-up for The American Lawyer Litigation Daily’s “Litigator of the Week” feature for their pro bono work for Ricky Johnson.

"... Our next runner-up spot goes to Jordan Greene and Kasdin Mitchell of Kirkland & Ellis. They have been representing pro bono client Ricky Johnson in pursuing Eighth Amendment claims against three Georgia prison officials accused of delaying care for Johnson’s Hepatitis C, which progressed to stage 4 with cirrhosis of the liver when left untreated for years. The Eleventh Circuit last week revived Johnson’s claims, finding the officials “were deliberately indifferent to Johnson’s serious medical needs,” reversing a summary judgment ruling by the district court."
