Ms. Liskow also promotes humane treatment for people housed in our jails and prisons. She has litigated class actions on behalf of hundreds of thousands of people whose rights were violated while they were behind bars. Recently, Ms. Liskow represented detainees of Lake County Jail in Indiana who alleged that the holding cells were severely overcrowded and inhumane. The case was certified as a class action on behalf of thousands. In 2012, the class won a settlement of $7.2 million. In addition to class actions, Ms. Liskow has represented dozens of civil rights plaintiffs in individual lawsuits. She has tried seven cases to juries, twice as lead trial attorney. In six out of the seven trials, the federal juries found for the plaintiffs. Ms. Liskow has secured successful settlements for many of the firm's clients. In cases litigated by Ms. Liskow, with colleagues, the verdicts and settlements total over $70 million. Ms. Liskow has experience in all areas of civil rights litigation, from deposing officials, arguing and winning hundreds of motions, and handling appeals. In addition, Ms. Liskow performs work pro bono, including defending political protestors and, with a team of Chicago civil rights lawyers, representing journalist Jamie Kalven in his ongoing fight for citizens' access to documents about the Chicago Police Department. Ms. Liskow received her college degree from Rice University, magna cum laude.
