John DeCamp, JD was born in Neligh, Nebraska, and joined the United States Army during the Vietnam War. He was later assigned to serve as an aide to former CIA director William Colby, who was Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam at the time. Beginning his campaign for election while still stationed in Vietnam, DeCamp was elected and served four terms as a Nebraska state senator, from 1971 to 1987.
Mr. DeCamp received his law degree from the University of Nebraska College of Law in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1967, and has helped hundreds of injured people recover millions of dollars in compensation. Decorated by President Carter for his service in Vietnam, Mr. DeCamp is listed as one of eight outstanding Vietnam veterans and organized the famous Operation Baby Lift in 1975 bringing 2,834 children of servicemen back to the USA.
John DeCamp represented Mark Taylor in Taylor v. Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 223 F.R.D. 544, 546 (D. Colo. 2004) and Civil Case Number:01-B-2076 (PAC) in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, Lewis T. Babcock, Chief Judge. Filed 10-15-2003. The Solvay case alleged that Solvay Pharmaceuticals, the maker of Luvox, the SSRI Antidepressant drug that Eric Harris was taking at the time of the Massacre, was a contributing cause to Mark's injuries.
During the Solvay trial, certain evidence was introduced which caused the Judge to halt the trial and put all attorneys under gag order. The depositions of the Harris and Klebold's parents were immediately put under seal. The seal on the parent’s depositions was renewed in 2008 for an additional twenty years as reported in 223 F.R.D. 544, 546 (D. Colo. 2004)
While Mr. DeCamp is under gag order, he is permitted to speak about some things he learned in his investigations and talk about his opinions of the case based on public records.
