Criminal Defense Attorney Stephen R. Glazer was recently recognized for his contribution to an Amicus Brief submitted by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) in a case involving the improper suppression of exculpatory evidence.
NACDL is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to ensure justice and due process for persons accused of a crime and to promote the proper and fair administration of criminal justice. Its amicus curiae program oversees the authorship and submission of amicus briefs which advocate for the defense of individual liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rights in real cases being decided by courts across the United States.
Mr. Glazer, who has been a member of NACDL for over ten years, co-authored a brief which argued that the failure of the State to disclose exculpatory evidence prejudices a criminal defendant not only at the trial itself, but also during the preparation and strategic planning phases of a case. In February, 2015, he was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his
“outstanding service” to NACDL’s goals and objectives.
