Joe Scheidler receiving the William Lloyd Garrison AwardToday in League HistoryOctober 20, 2007—League Director Joe Scheidler receives the William Lloyd Garrison Award—named for the indefatigable 19th century abolitionist—at the 10th Anniversary celebration of the Thomas More Society Pro-Life Law Center. The Society was founded in order to pursue an appeal of the jury verdict against Joe in the epic NOW v. Scheidler lawsuit, with Joe’s lead attorney Tom Brejcha at the helm. Brejcha and the Society would win two decisive Supreme Court victories in 2003 and 2006, which overturned the verdict against Joe.
