3L Linda Long Convinces Judge to Vacate Order Against Client

Linda Long

Chase 3L Linda Long has saved an indigent client from having to pay $11,000 in erroneously ordered restitution. Ms. Long wrote a brief that convinced a prosecutor and a trial judge that a retroactive restitution order against her client in the Chase Constitutional Litigation Clinic was in error. The judge had decided at sentencing nearly a year ago not to order restitution. Based on her brief, the judge vacated the retroactive order.
