Against All Tides: The Untold Story of the USS Kitty Hawk Race Riots (a Defense Attorney’s Perspective) (Ethics)

General Session


Marv Truhe

Against All Tides: The Untold Story of the USS Kitty Hawk Race Riots (a Defense Attorney's Perspective) (Ethics) .  Marv Truhe, Author, Former US Navy JAG Lawyer This presentation is inspired by Mr. Truhe's book, Against All Tides, The Untold Story of the USS Kitty Hawk Race Riot.  The book exposes the racial injustices perpetrated against 25 Black sailors who were charged with rioting aboard the Kitty Hawk in 1972 while it was conducting bombing runs into North Vietnam. Mr. Truhe's first-person account chronicles the incident and his defense of several of those sailors at their courts-martial trials.  Mr. Truhe's presentation will draw from those experiences to discuss ethical dilemmas in the legal practice when answering to superiors and interplay with rules of professional conduct, as well as issues related to unconscious racial bias.
