More info on the attorney who filed the suit:
ACLU Branches Out
The ACLU of Southern Californias long-in-the-works plan to open a branch office in Orange County took a big step this month with the hiring of Hector Villagra as director of that office, and Belinda Escobosa Helzer as staff attorney.
Villagra comes to us after serving four years as the regional counsel for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), where he supervised legal activities for California, Arizona and Nevada. His career includes clerking for Stephen J. Reinhardt of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Chief Justice Robert N. Wilentz of the New Jersey Supreme Court. He is admitted to several bars, including the California Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, and the U.S. District Court, Central District California.
I think there's a joke in here somewhere....
