The Criminal Practice Committee of the Federal Bar Association, Eastern District of Michigan Chapter, presented a roundtable brown-bag lunch event on the topic of “Death Penalty Litigation in Michigan” on Friday, Feb. 18, at the T. Levin Courthouse in Detroit. Taking part in the discussion were Committee Co-chair Matthew F. Leitman with Miller, Canfield, Paddock, & Stone PLC; Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Lemisch, chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Michigan; attorney Richard Kammen, counsel for several capital defendants; U.S District Court Judge Arthur Tarnow, Eastern District of Michigan; and Harold Gurewitz of Gurewitz & Raben PLC.  Michigan abolished the death penalty more than 150 years ago but there are still death penalty cases in the state for a limited number of federal crimes.
