The (Theoretical) Right to Counsel

A lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in Fulton County by several law firms and public interest organizations seeking to revamp the State’s public defender system, in particular its ability to supply effective attorneys to individuals in need of appellate representation. ┬áSome of Georgia’s most prominent law firms are litigating this case, including the Southern Center for Human Rights; Garland, Samuel and Loeb; and Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore. ┬áNot to mention my good friend and colleague, Stephen R. Scarborough.

The complaint is available here (PDF – 2.87 MB).
