Joe Palmore, co-chair of the Morrison & Foerster Appeals and Supreme Court and managing partner of the Washington, DC office, today received the Judicial Advocacy Initiative Award from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN ).

The award recognizes lawyers who generously donate their services to the fight against cancer through the Judicial Advocacy Initiative (JAI). The JHA identifies lawsuits and regulatory actions that have an impact on the fight against cancer and files amicus briefs or comments to defend the interests of cancer patients and survivors.

Joe receives the JAI award for his pro bono representation of ACS CAN and other amici in litigation over inadequate health coverage offered by limited-term short-term insurance plans and a rule that would allowed health care providers to discriminate against LGBTQ + people and take away certain rights of patients with limited English proficiency.
