MAPS Receives Pro-Bono Representation to Appeal Craker Case in First Circuit Court of Appeals

MAPS has received a generous offer for pro-bono legal representation from the Washington, DC law firm Covington & Burling LLP, one of the foremost law firms representing the pharmaceutical industry, to appeal the DEA’s August 15 final order in the First Circuit Court of Appeals. These legal actions would otherwise have cost MAPS an estimated $175,000 in legal fees, which we may or may not have been able to raise.
