Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry
– – –
An Army veteran and former police officer in New Jersey, Meiswinkle is a criminal defense attorney. He and Atty. Mick Harrison, litigation director, are the organization’s principal lawyers.
Since 2002 the Lawyers’ Committee has conducted investigations, legal actions and public education related to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the circumstances leading up to and following those events. Its focus is on government accountability regarding investigation and prosecution of those responsible for federal crimes related to the attacks.
Most prominently, although in the near total absence of news media coverage, the Committee has (1) petitioned the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York to present to a Special Grand Jury information submitted by citizens regarding the commission of federal crimes related to the 9/11 attacks, and (2) taken legal action against the FBI in U.S. District Court in Washington, DC, to compel the Bureau to access and report evidence of the explosive demolition of three World Trade Center skyscrapers (the Twin Towers and Building 7) as well as other unaddressed evidence related to the attacks. Both of these actions have required follow-up attention.
Additionally, last October, it formally petitioned Congress to initiate a Congressional investigation of the September 2001 anthrax attacks.
