Michael D. Kendall was quoted in the March 13 issue of the National Law Journal in an article regarding Judge Richard G. Stearns' ruling that the Massachusetts Department of Corrections must make dietary and prayer service accommodations for two Muslim inmates. As the prisoners' pro bono counsel, Mr. Kendall noted that this case is one of only a few that have gone to trial since the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 took effect. "Prisoner cases are very tough to win. Sometimes the facts haven't been developed from the beginning and sometimes clients don't know how to present their claim. This case was won on the strength and sincerity of the prisoners who were bringing it," Mr. Kendall said.
