Dear U.S. District Judge Morris,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history and social justice. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. U.S. District Judge Morris, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work in the judicial system to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Associate Justice of the Montana Supreme Court from 2005-2013, I really liked on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, expressing the need for stronger Civil Rights to help protect minorities including people who are different from being discriminated in public places, and supporting the need to strengthen laws to combat against hate-crime. Also in the Montana Supreme Court I liked on how were an advocate for the need for criminal justice reform like the need for drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug addiction, support programs to help victims of crime or domestic violence get help from law enforcement resources to get help on their trauma, and express the need to reduce racial profiling in the criminal justice system to help protect minorities including immigrants from being oppressed. In 2013, I was very proud on how you accepted President Obama to nominate you to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana to help him improve the judicial system and our country. In your current role as U.S. District Judge, I’m very proud on how you are a continuous strong supporter of Civil Rights and expressing the need for criminal justice reform. Also what I like about your work in the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana is how you are supporting victim’s rights and protect civil liberties like the fourth amendment to help protect people from unreasonable search warrants.
U.S. District Judge Morris, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role in the Montana Supreme Court and in the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana gives me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, and even the criminal justice reform. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to strengthen Civil Rights to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in the judicial system.. I’m very proud on how you are continuing to support Civil Rights, protect civil liberties including victim’s rights, and express support for the criminal justice system. You have truly inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history including social justice. I was wondering if you could please share with me on how you become inspired to be interested in working in the judicial system. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to improve the judicial system, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great difference.
