Before the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol building one year ago, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison partner Jeannie Rhee was already in court over the actions of Proud Boys in Washington, D.C.

Paul Weiss, along with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights & Urban Affairs, on Jan. 4, 2021, filed a lawsuit against the Proud Boys and its leader Enrique Tarrio over the destruction of a Black Lives Matter flag at a historic Black church in D.C. The firm is now taking on the Proud Boys again, through a lawsuit filed by D.C. against the group and the Oath Keepers, alleging a conspiracy to try and block the certification of the 2020 election results.
