Barrett vs. Peters, 360 Or. 445 (2016)

Nadia Dahab prevailed in the Oregon Supreme Court in a habeas case presenting an issue of access to justice for inmates confined out of state under the Interstate Correction Compact. The client was an inmate who had been convicted of a crime under Oregon law but was incarcerated in a Florida prison pursuant to the Interstate Corrections Compact. In the Oregon Supreme Court, Dahab successfully argued that inmates transferred to out-of-state institutions pursuant to the Interstate Corrections Compact retain their Oregon state constitutional rights. The Supreme Court’s opinion can be found here.
