CLM partner Josh Levy has filed a complaint to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on behalf of several Washington D.C. citizens—including retired judges and religious leaders—that articulates why President Trump’s license to serve beer, wine, and liquor at his establishments in the District should be revoked.
In a Washington Post op-ed, Colbert I. King writes about the complaint and its significance:
When I first wrote about the complaint against Trump on July 6, a few readers dismissed the issue as trivial, a nuisance — a case of a mosquito biting an elephant’s hide. I disagree. This case matters, if the rule of law is to have any meaning.

In a Washington Post op-ed, Bob Muse is quoted sharing his thoughts regarding U.S. courts’ ability to protect the Mueller investigation from presidential interference:
“Just as with Sirica, it’s improbable that the chief judge of the district court will sit idly by and watch the president corrupt the system,” argues Robert Muse, a prominent defense lawyer and former member of the Senate Watergate Committee.

KIGALI, RWANDA—The Government of Rwanda retained a team of lawyers and investigators at Cunningham Levy Muse LLP, led by Bob Muse, Josh Levy and Daren Firestone to examine publicly available information on the role of French officials in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
That examination culminated in the Muse Report, which can be found here. The Muse Report of December 11, 2017, recommends that based on the publicly available information, a full investigation into the role of French government and military officials in the Genocide against the Tutsi is fully warranted. Rwanda has accepted the recommendation, and CLM will be conducting this investigation, on behalf of the Rwandan government.

These Are the Police Body Camera Questions State and Local Stakeholders Must Address Quickly
A North Carolina jury failed to reach a verdict in the case of a police officer who shot an unarmed black man 10 times in the back and the judge dismissed the case in late August.
Police cruiser dashboard camera footage showed the suspect rapidly approaching the car but did not capture the 13 shots fired by the officer, or the 10 that struck the deceased.
In defense, the officer claimed the suspect tried to grab his gun. The jury voted 8-4 to acquit, and the attorney general said he would not retry the officer due, in part, to lack of evidence.
We will never know what really happened that night. Had the officer been wearing a body-worn video camera (BWC), we might. (Keep Reading)

FILE – In this Dec. 2, 2014 file photo, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch meets with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. on Capitol Hill in Washington. As the Justice Department opens a civil rights investigation into the chokehold death of an unarmed man in New York City, the prosecutor in charge of the probe is juggling another high-profile role: designated heir to Eric Holder as the nation’s attorney general.
WASHINGTON (AP) – As the Justice Department opens a civil rights investigation into the chokehold death of an unarmed man in New York City, the prosecutor in charge of the probe is juggling another high-profile role: designated heir to Eric Holder as the nation’s attorney general.
The dual positions have placed Loretta Lynch in a public spotlight ahead of Senate confirmation hearings, a period of time when cabinet nominees normally seek a lower profile to avoid providing fodder for critics. She’ll inevitably be questioned about the investigation into Eric Garner’s death, an obvious priority for a Justice Department seeking to address concerns about police use of force and racial bias in law enforcement.
“This case is going to gain public notoriety either way. That she’s handling it certainly gives another reason for people to talk about it,” said Joshua Levy, a Washington lawyer and former counsel to Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider Lynch’s nomination.
