Carter White Comments on Santa Clara University Clinical Fees Suit

Carter "Cappy" White, supervising attorney with the UC Davis School of Law Civil Rights Clinic, commented for the Daily Journal on a lawsuit filed by an El Segundo-based firm alleging misappropriation of funds received for work done by students at Santa Clara University's Katherine and George Alexander Community Law Center. White was skeptical of the claim, calling it a "case of sour grapes."

"Seems to me it's an internal accounting issue," he added, noting that fees collected for clinical work done by UC Davis law students go "into a pot of money that pays for these clinical programs."

Carter White has been a trial and appellate lawyer for more than 20 years, emphasizing civil rights, employment discrimination, and personal injury cases. He also teaches courses in Civil Rights and Pretrial Skills.
