Cornell First Amendment Clinic student Andrew Gelfand (CLS ’23) and ACLU of Vermont Staff Attorney Harrison Stark argued at the Vermont Supreme Court yesterday in a case with important implications for access to Vermont public records. Several generations of Cornell Clinic students have worked on this case on behalf of news outlet VTDigger.

Pictured from left to right is Lia Ernst, Hillary Rich (CLS ’19), Stark and Gelfand. Not pictured: Co-counsel Jared Carter, Timothy Cornell (CLS ’02), and Heather Murray (CLS ’13) and Clinic student Lauren Kazen (CLS ’23). #CornellLawClinics #CornellLaw

The clinic began working with the Ithaca-based food service business in the spring of 2021, and has continued to help them sort through the regulations and permits required for an expanding restaurant. #Cornell.law.school #CornellLawSchool #CornellLawClinics @levkitchenco
