Legal Aid Society Recognizes Kaye Scholer Lawyers for Post-Release Supervision Work

October 7, 2008

David Klingsberg was honored by The Legal Aid Society on October 7, 2008, as a recipient of the Society's 2008 Pro Bono Awards for outstanding service to The Legal Aid Society and its clients.

Mr. Klingsberg was being recognized for his efforts on behalf of individuals who have been reincarcerated because of illegally-imposed post-release supervision (PRS) administrative determinations. The firm is representing more than a dozen clients who have been improperly subjected to PRS, ranging from people who have been incarcerated for violating the terms of their improperly-imposed PRS to those who have been released from prison but must still comply with strict PRS requirements. Thus far, we have prevailed in five of these cases. Additionally, the firm acted as amicus for The Legal Aid Society, resulting in a recent landmark decision prohibiting the administrative (i.e. non-judicial) imposition of PRS.
