Monica Shah Argues Appeal on Behalf of Mentally Ill and Suicidal Client Facing Extradition to Scotland

On June 4, 2014, Monica Shah argued before the Court of the Appeals for the First Circuit to prevent the extradition of a client, who suffers from serious mental illness and is highly suicidal, to the United Kingdom. In light of the gravity of the issues presented, the lower court had stayed the extradition order and granted the client bail pending appeal. The Court of Appeals has taken the appeal under advisement. The Boston Globe article on the case can be accessed here.
