Using the litigation documents and the sequential storyline of the plight of the Haitian asylum seekers, Jean v. Nelson litigation attorney and University of Miami Professor of Law Irwin P. Stotzky takes the reader through the landmark trial and complicated appellate process to the final United States Supreme Court decision. In doing so, he uses the actual filed documents, asides, and backstory, including the impact of Justice Marshall's dissent at the root of all current immigration law litigation, the guarantee of equal protection to asylum seekers detained around the United States.
