As legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas – counsel on all statewide cases and recipient of 5,000 complaints a year – Graybill represents the last stand for the Bill of Rights and beyond in the Lone Star state. 2007 has been a busy year for the South Austin resident, as active cases on the ACLU docket have included successful challenges of prisonlike conditions at the T. Don Hutto detention center in Taylor and unconstitutional Bible classes at high schools in Odessa. When not coming to the aid of a religiously persecuted Dallas Sikh, protesters of the war in Iraq in Crawford, and black voters in Austin, Graybill enjoys gardening and no-limit hold 'em poker.
