K Grad Successfully Petitions Case for Supreme Court Hearing

Christian Grostic ’01 was counsel for petitioner in the Tennessee civil rights case Burnside v. Walters, No. 12-7892, which the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear this past May. The Supreme Court’s decision to review the case spurred the lower court to overrule its 15-year-old precedent restricting equal access to the courts for indigent plaintiffs. Grostic works for the Cleveland (Ohio) law firm Kushner & Hamed.
