Although his teaching earns high marks, as does his advocacy for those without legal aid, Barry Nakell, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill law professor, was fired after two shoplifting charges. He received support from a faculty committee and is appealing the decision.
UNC law professor, Barry Nakell, has been prevented from representing Eddie Hatcher as his lawyer. Nakell is a civil rights attorney and was selected by Hatcher to represent his case. A series of actions by state officials and judges has prevented this. Nakell has been accused of pursuing a “frivolous” lawsuit on behalf of Hatcher and thrown out of a court room where he was not allowed to speak on behalf of his client. Hatcher has been forced to represent himself as a result. Nakell and other civil rights lawyers involved in the case see this as a conspiracy to deny Hatcher of his chosen legal team.
