Free Film Screening: Marvin Booker was Murdered
Come see local filmmaker Wade Gardner’s film, Marvin Booker Was Murdered, at DU Law. Booker was a homeless street preacher murdered in Denver’s jail. The Denver DA pursued no crime on the part of deputies who tasered him over and over, leading to Booker’s death. The City paid out over 4.5 million dollars in a subsequent Civil trial, after his family sued with representation from local civil rights firm Killmer, Lane, and Newman, several partners of whom teach at DU Law.
Gardner will be on hand to discuss the film at 6 PM, and the movie begins at 7 PM. Attorneys Darold Killmer and Mari Newman will also be speaking at the event.
