Schulte has announced that the firm has joined a legal team of civil and human rights attorneys who are suing local governments, the Oklahoma National Guard and other officials on behalf of survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, seeking to “remedy the ongoing nuisance” caused by the mob attack which leveled much of the 40-square-block Greenwood community in Tulsa, left hundreds of Black residents dead and thousands homeless. In this article, partner, litigation co-chair and pro bono chair Michael Swartz and special counsel for pro bono initiatives Sara Solfanelli discuss the significance of the case and Schulte's role in the litigation.
The Schulte team is led by Michael Swartz, Sara Solfanelli and litigation associate and Task Force for Racial Justice Initiatives co-chair McKenzie Haynes. The team also includes litigation associates and members of the Task Force for Racial Justice Initiatives Ekenedilichukwu (Keni) Ukabiala and Angela Garcia; individual client services associate and member of the Task Force for Racial Justice Initiatives Victoria Harris; and former Schulte lawyers Oscar Saunders, AnnaLise Bender-Brown and John Garces.
