Harvard Law Professors Intisar A. Rabb ...win case for former Buffalo police officer fired for intervening in a chokehold

HLS professors win case for former Buffalo police officer fired for intervening in a chokehold - Harvard Law Today

Harvard Law Professors Intisar A. Rabb and Ronald S. Sullivan Jr.

Intisar Rabb: I got a call from Rami Nashashibi [founder and executive director] of the Inner-City Muslim Action Network in Chicago [with whom] I had been doing some work in the wake of George Floyd’s killing. Rami [explained that Horne] had intervened to save the life of Neal Mack in exactly the way we would have wanted the officers around Derek Chauvin to save the life of George Floyd. But instead of being celebrated for it, she was penalized for it and hasn’t really worked steadily ever since. I said, we have to take this case, let me get Ron Sullivan on the line. We did a three-way call right then, and by the end of the call we signed onto the case.

In 2006, former Buffalo Police Officer Cariol Horne intervened to stop a fellow officer who was using a chokehold against a handcuffed Black man, Neal Mack. An internal investigation found that Horne violated police policy and offered her a four-day suspension. Horne, a 19-year-veteran of the force, refused and insisted on a public hearing, and in 2008, months before her pension vested, she was fired. Despite the resulting financial and personal hardship, Horne never veered from insisting she did the right thing and working to clear her name.
