Ritchie Eppink

any pronouns

has litigated many of Idaho’s highest profile, most complex, and largest cases. Legal Director of the ACLU of Idaho for a decade and Justice Architect for Idaho Legal Aid Services before that, courts have commended Ritchie’s “extraordinary performance”—on the record. Ritchie has represented groups including a class of every person facing pending criminal or juvenile charges in Idaho, adults with developmental disabilities throughout the state, entire housing communities threatened with eviction, Occupy Boise, and every prisoner at Idaho’s largest prison. Some of Ritchie’s conventional litigation victories include ending censorship of performance art and theater in Idaho, striking down Idaho’s “ag-gag” law, holding the private prison operator Corrections Corporation of America in contempt of court, an injunction resulting in the repeal of an anti-panhandling law, and a $1 million federal jury verdict against the City of Boise for separating families needing emergency shelter.
