At 29, Rachel Meeropol is already at the forefront of national civil rights litigation. She is a member of the litigating team in Doe v. Bush, a case seeking legal representation for the unnamed detainees in Guant�namo Bay, Cuba. She was a researcher on the recent Supreme Court cases Rasul v. Bush, another Guant�namo case, and Wilkinson v. Austin, which challenged due process at supermaximum-security prisons. Meeropol is currently lead counsel in Turkmen v. Ashcroft, a class action on behalf of Muslim men held in immigration sweeps following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, currently before the Eastern District of New York; Walton v. NYDOCS and MCI, a suit against New York state and the phone company MCI Inc. over MCI’s monopoly contract on phone calls made from prison on appeal in New York state court; and Daniels v. The City of New York, a racial-profiling class action against the New York City Police Department, which settled two years ago and resulted in modified training for police officers. In addition, Meeropol is the co-vice president of the New York City chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, a co-editor and primary author of the Jailhouse Lawyers Handbook, a reference guide for prisoners without an attorney to learn their rights, and the editor of America’s Disappeared: Secret Imprisonment, Detainees, and the “War on Terror.”
