Nina Morrison, Senior Litigation Counsel for the Innocence Project and a former ECBAWM associate, has been confirmed as a United States District Judge for the United States District Court of the Eastern District of New York. While at ECBAWM, Morrison’s practice focused on civil rights and commercial litigation. After leaving the firm, Morrison joined the Innocence Project, where her work has directly led to the freeing of more than thirty wrongly convicted people from prison and death row.
“We’re proud that Nina began her career at the firm before her brilliant career at the Innocence Project. Nina will be a great asset to the federal bench,” said ECBAWM partner Ilann M. Maazel.
“Nina Morrison is a champion for justice. The litigants and lawyers who will appear before her will see that in all of her work, and the court will benefit from the knowledge, skills, ethics, and heart she brings to the bench. We are extremely proud to know her,” said ECBAWM partner Andrew G. Celli, Jr.
