Human Rights Lawyer Settles NYPD Case After Arrest for Blocking Sidewalk - NBC News

My article for NBC News Asian America re Chaumtoli Huq case
"Being a human rights attorney, I know the legal system does not work for those who have been historically and presently excluded from it, and knew this growing up as a working class immigrant in the Bronx," Huq said. "But going through the legal system as a client, not the lawyer, gives you a perch from which you see the day to day ways we are asked to negotiate away our rights, and be comfortable with what we get."
