Representing Sami Al Arian.
Linda Moreno has practiced criminal defense law in both state and federal courts for the last thirty years around the United States. She has successfully defended clients in a number of high profile cases. She successfully represented Sami al-Arian, a Palestinian professor, in what was seen as the seminal test of the Patriot Act in United States vs. Sami Amin Al Arian, et al. in 2003. Al Arian was accused of raising funds for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The court case against him raised many important questions about the Rule of Law and the war on terrorism. Moreno shared her reflections about this case with the audience.
