Operation Rescue questions gov't's slow transition

Friday 17th April, 2015 Hits:283 Local Ken Richards

Dominican attorney Anthony Astaphan says the court, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this Thursday, has made significant jurisdictional strides both at the original and appellate levels.
