Professor David Mills was mentioned in the following Los Angeles Times article on a billionaire's donation to the movement against California's three-strikes law.

Billionaire George Soros has written a $500,000 check to help finance a potential ballot measure that aims to lower the number of criminals serving prison terms of 25 year to life under California's three-strikes law.

The hedge-fund titan and longtime supporter of liberal causes made the donation on Jan. 30, according to records filed with the secretary of State's office.


The contribution from Soros came the same day that one of the measure's co-authors, Stanford law professor David Mills, gave the campaign $250,000. That raises Mills' contributions to a total of $603,000, making him the largest contributor to the effort.
