A prominent critic of evidentiary practices at Guantanamo Bay and an advocate for new federal civil rights legislation were the recipients Thursday of the 33rd annual Whittaker Award from the Lawyers Association of Kansas City. At a lunch at the World War I Museum in Kansas City, the association honored Morris Davis, the former chief prosecutor at the extraterritorial prison for terrorists in Cuba who resigned in protest over the use of evidence obtained through "enhanced interrogation techniques."
The group also honored Alvin Sykes (pictured), whose lobbying led to the signing of the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act, which provides money for federal authorities to reopen cold civil rights-era criminal cases.
