Tony Serra, one of the most respected attorneys in the San Francisco Bay Area, will speak to the annual meeting of the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity County Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Northern California.
This free event is being held on Saturday, January 21 at the Pilgrim Congregational Church, 2850 Foothill Blvd., in Redding. It begins at 1 p.m. and is open to the general public.
The subject of Serra’s speech will be “Why Jury Trials are an Endangered Species.”
His clients have included Huey Newton of the Black Panther Party, Russell Little and Michael Bortin of the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), and members of the Hell’s Angels.
“Tony has spent his life defending society’s outcasts. He began his law practice in the 1960’s, an era he calls the golden age of law. Perceiving himself in the role of a warrior, Tony has continued to battle for more freedom for more people through law,” said Don Yost, chairman of the local ACLU chapter.
