Our Kat Aaron, project editor of What Went Wrong, has been named as an Alicia Patterson Fellow for 2012. The prestigious Patterson fellowship will allow Aaron to continue her reporting into the functioning of the nation's civil courts system. She wrote two stories on the civil courts earlier this year, exploring the history of controversy around the Legal Services Corporation and the impact of budget cuts on civil justice. The program, named for Alicia Patterson, the longtime editor and publisher of Newsday, was was established in 1965 to support working journalists pursuing in-depth reporting. It is America’s oldest writing fellowship. Aaron is one of six journalists awarded the Patterson fellowship for 2012.
