The Center for Justice and Accountability The Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) is an inter- national human rights organization dedicated to deterring torture and other severe human rights abuses around the world, and advancing the rights of survivors to seek truth, justice, and redress. CJA uses litigation to hold perpetrators individually accountable for human rights abuses,develop human rights law, and advance the rule of law in countries transitioning from periods of abuse. CJA recently filed a criminal case in Spain against Alfredo Cristiani Burkard, the former Salvadoran President and Com- mander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, as well as 14 former officers and soldiers of the Salvadoran Army, for their roles in the 1989 massacre of six Jesuit priests and two civilian assistants in El Salvador. The case was filed using Spain’s universal jurisdiction law, which provides for jurisdiction over criminal matters if the crimes sufficiently concern Spanish interests. Former U.S. Congressman John Joseph Moakley was heavily involved in seeking peace in El Salvador and chaired a congressional investigation into the murders. His legislative files are maintained at the Joseph Moakley Archives at Suffolk Law School, and many of these documents are highly relevant to the prosecution in Spain. In 2009, Mintz Levin attorneys Sue Finegan and Ben Clark coordinated a review of the documents maintained in the Moakley Archives to assist CJA with its prosecution in Spain. In addition to the intensive document review,Mintz Levin summer associates Erin Cornell,Mary Harrison,and Nathan McConarty reviewed and analyzed observation reports of the original trial of military personnel which took place in El Salvador. CJA is currently using these observation reports and the documents reviewed and analyzed by Mintz Levin as it prepares for the prosecution in Spain. The Anti-Defamation League Israel’s Law of Return grants Jews around the world the right to become Israeli citizens.The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) asked Mintz Levin for research help concerning a civil rights issue thatADL came across in a recent case: is it appropriate for a judge to consider Israel’s Law of Return in determining whether to deny bail to a Jewish defendant? Also, is such consideration constitutional? Summer associates Erin Cornell and Rebecca Diamond, under the supervision of Paul Wilson, looked at the Bail Reform Act of 1984 and certain clauses of the U.S. Consti- tution and determined that consideration of the Law of Return would likely survive most, if not all, constitutional challenges. However, they also determined that, in most cases, consid- eration is inappropriate under the Bail Reform Act because simply having an option to emigrate to Israel and obtain citizen- ship does not outweigh reasonable assurances that an individual will appear for trial as required, and further, that the extradition treaty between the United States and Israel mitigates the risk of flight. ADL will use the results of this research in any future cases in which a judge cites Israel’s Law of Return as a reason to deny bail to a Jewish defendant.
