Lawyer Anne Derrick—your choice for Best Activist—is protected by the best office bureaucracy, it seems. We called the office to let Derrick know about her most-recent, least-publicized victory, but the secretary said she’d have to check with the office manager before she could release any info about Derrick. Ah well. The activist-lawyer has left her mark on high-profile cases like those of Dr. Nancy Morrison, Eric Smith and Donald Marshall, Jr.
