Civil Rights

Assistant Attorney General-designate Deval Patrick plans to bring some badly needed diversity to the Civil Rights Div. of the Justice Dept. San Antonio legal-aid attorney Jos Garza will be named to one of four deputy slots, and Bill Tamayo of the Asian Law Caucus and Linda Wong, general counsel of Rebuild LA, are in the running for another. Currently, of 10 section chiefs in the Civil Rights Div., there is one black and no Latinos or Asian-Americans.
