Attorney Leake is to Request US Supreme Court Review of DUI with Assistance of Harvard Law
On October 31, 2019, in a 5-2 decision the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decided Commonwealth v. Olson, a DUI case Attorney Leake took all the way to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. While the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ultimately decided against Attorney Leake's client, two of the Supreme Court Justices, including Chief Justice Saylor, agreed with Attorney Leake's position and wrote dissenting opinions.
After the decision was made, several high level law firms approached Attorney Leake offering to volunteer in some cases over a million dollars in legal work to assist Attorney Leake in the preparation of the case to be brought before the US Supreme Court.
Recently, Attorney Leake was contacted by an attorney with the MacArthur Justice Institution in Washington D.C., and the director of the Harvard Law School Appellate Clinic, who has volunteered as co-counsel with Mr. Leake on the case. The case has also been certified as a Harvard Appellate Clinic case. Attorney Leake, in conjunction with the attorneys at MacArthur and Harvard Law School's Appellate Clinic are currently working on the Petition for Review that they will be filing with the US Supreme Court soon.
