Case Summary

(This summary is temporary while we research the case.) This case concerns the City of Edmundson's alleged practice of exploiting primarily poor people of color through a system of criminalizing, arresting, and jailing people who could not afford to pay court fines and fees as a result of a municipal court system geared towards excessive ticketing. ArchCity Defenders filed a lawsuit against the City on December 12, 2018, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. On June 2, 2022, plaintiffs announced that the parties had reached a settlement agreement which over ten thousand individuals were eligible to file claims under.
