Steve Hut named Baltimore Sun’s Newsmaker of the Week

December 24, 2006

Steve Hut and his team of WilmerHale lawyers have been part of the news headlines in Maryland and throughout the nation this month for their work in putting a halt to all executions in Maryland—so much so that this week the Baltimore Sun named Steve as their newsmaker of the week.

Steve and the team achieved a significant victory for their client, Maryland death row inmate Vernon Evans, last week when the Maryland Court of Appeals held that the procedures for implementing lethal injection were adopted without complying with the state’s Administrative Procedure Act and indefinitely postponed Vernon Evans’s death. Members of the team of lawyers who worked with Steve to obtain this important victory include Todd Zubler, who argued the winning point in the Court of Appeals, Kalea Seitz Clark, and Anne Harden Tindall.
