Cohen Asks DOJ to Look into Reported Computer Glitches at Shelby County Jail and Courts
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch requesting that the U.S. Department of Justice look into reports of computer glitches at the Shelby County Jail and courts in Tennessee that have caused individuals who have posted bail to remain stuck in jail. A copy of Congressman Cohen’s letter can be found here. “If true, these reports are deeply concerning,” said Congressman Cohen in his letter. “No one should spend one additional minute, let alone days, in jail when, under law, they are supposed to be free. As the Memphis Commercial Appeal so aptly put it, justice delayed is justice denied. I respectfully request that the Department of Justice look into this problem to ensure that civil rights are protected.”

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DEMOCRATS OPPOSE SESSIONS PICK
Washington, DC – This morning, President-elect Donald Trump announced that U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) would be his choice for Attorney General.  We need an Attorney General who represents the American people’s best interests by fighting to strengthen voting rights, prevent violence against women, and work to reform our broken immigration system, among other priorities. Senator Sessions was denied a federal judgeship in 1986 following a history of racially-charged comments and disturbing attitudes towards minority groups; and his record since only furthers cause for concern. The Democratic Members of the House Committee on the Judiciary issued the following joint statement in response: “The Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, charged with the administration of the criminal justice system and the enforcement of our civil rights.  We have grave concerns with Senator Sessions’ potential nomination for this post and urge President-
