Thomas Gallagher was elected President of the Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice for a one-year term by a unanimous vote of its members on January 8, 2011.
The Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice (MSCJ) is the oldest association of criminal defense lawyers in Minnesota. It is a lawyers’ College, meeting each month – sharing information and continuing legal education, providing support for litigation to help protect the rights of Minnesotans.
The Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice also fights for justice legislatively and through the courts. For example, the MSCJ Source Code Coalition led by MSCJ litigated the most significant and expensive fight against Minnesota’s unfair DWI laws in history: the CMI-Minnesota Intoxilyzer machine computer source code litigation in Minnesota.
Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice attorneys fight for the civil rights and constitutional rights of the People against the government.
