- The ACLU Foundation of Southern California honored Loeb & Loeb co-chairman John T. Frankenheimer with the 2004 Torch of Liberty Award at an event July 26 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles.
The Torch of Liberty Award was created to acknowledge contributions made by individuals from the arts and entertainment industry and the media whose work affirms the democratic principles that underlie the promise of liberty and justice for all.
The Foundation cited Frankenheimer's "extraordinary commitment to social issues central to the work of the ACLU, including artists' rights, children's rights, medical rights, immigrant rights and the rights of the homeless." It noted his involvement in numerous other civic organizations and bodies.
The Foundation also highlighted Loeb & Loeb's "outstanding dedication" to civil rights and civil liberties. It cited, among other things, the firm's pro bono work in landmark litigation concerning free speech, non-discriminatory housing, minority voting rights and other issues.
In 2003, Loeb & Loeb partner Douglas E. Mirell received the Foundation's Pro Bono Advocate of the Year Award.
