Suit filed in Louisiana over inadequate public defenders

by

comment
The ACLU has sued Orleans Parish and the Louisiana Public Defender Board over a shortage of public defenders there. Criminal defendants are entitled to counsel. They are not getting them. This isn't the first such suit.

I note thisbecause there's similar context in Arkansas, as we outlined in a cover story last year.
