Lisa Banks Authors Op-Ed for Stars and Stripes

December 21, 2023

KBK partner Lisa Banks has penned an op-ed article for the publication Stars and Stripes, the nation’s leading newspaper serving U.S. Military servicemembers.

In the piece, Ms. Banks discusses U.S. Coast Guard’s (USCG) failure to address decades of sexual assault allegations at its service academy, as well as the concealment of an internal investigation. She called for USCG to commit to transparency, make policy changes, and hold all perpetrators, past and present, accountable.

Last week, three KBK Clients represented by Lisa Banks and Suzanna Bobadilla testified to the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations regarding these matters. In their testimony, they told their stories and called for accountability from the USCG.
