The William L. Britt Tribute: A Salute to an Extraordinary Hero
This is the true story of Will Britt, a gifted college student, athlete, son, and local Santa Cruz, California, hero, whose heroic actions helped capture some dangerous criminals. For protective measures Will transferred from UC Santa Cruz to UCLA, where he quickly acclimated into his new life, joining a fraternity and meeting many new friends. Less than 2 years later, in September 2004, Will's world turned upside down, when he was falsely accused of sexual assault by a UCLA coed. Despite the fact that the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office refused to prosecute this false accusation, the UCLA Administrators continued to hold sham disciplinary hearings persecuting Will until it drove him to withdraw from school and return home to Sacramento, CA. Several months later, in April 2005, Will suffered a severe nervous breakdown from the continuing stress of persecution by UCLA Administrators, who stood in the way of his re-enrolling at UCLA to finish up his degree. Tragically, his dream would never be fulfilled because several days later, on April 28, 2005, Will was killed in a freak auto accident.
Will's lawyer, William Ginsburg and his father, Don Britt, explain how these malicious false allegations; the cruel, heartless, and insensitive treatment by UCLA Administrators; and how misguided a botched UCLA investigation, based on false charges, drove Will to his death. Both Bill Ginsburg and Don demand justice to have Will's reputation exonerated, his Bachelor's Degree, and the two coeds who filed false charges prosecuted under the UCLA Code of Student Conduct.
Bill Ginsburg is "Senior of Counsel" with Peterson & Bradford, LLP, and has tried over 300 jury trials to verdict. He has also handled a number of controversial cases over his four decades of practice, including the Paula Jones v. William Jefferson Clinton case, where he represented Monica Lewinsky. He was involved in the seminal "Right to Die" cases in California and was a principal trial lawyer in the US v Keller case in Texas establishing the rights of terminal patients to seek and obtain whatever treatment they desire without governmental interference. He represented the physician involved in the terminal care of Liberace in the investigation regarding the cause of Liberace's death from ARC. He has additionally been active in multiple civil rights issues over the years as a lawyer in good standing with the California Bar. Bill was a Captain in the United States Army and is admitted to practice before the Court of Military Review as well as The Supreme Court of the United States. He has tried cases in over 19 states.
Don Britt is a highly distinguished attorney, who decided to become n lawyer at an early age, when after being an accident victim, he became fascinated by the legal process. He earned both his undergraduate and law degrees at the University of California at Berkeley in 1966 and 1969 respectively. Don spent the first 10 years of his career defending a variety of personal injury and railroad related cases. It was this exposure to how the other side worked that led him into private practice in 1979 and what he calls his "true calling" as a plaintiff's attorney. From 1979 to 1986, Don worked on F.E.L.A. and other personal injury cases with the law offices of Leo M. O'Connor. He established the Firm of Britt & Simlick in 1987 and merged with The Crow Firm in 1994. During his 17 years of F.E.L.A. experience, Don has represented the surviving families in many major derailment accidents. Don continues to represent people with injuries of all kinds and is a member of the Consumer Attorneys of California, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the Academy of Rail Labor Attorneys.
