On February 6, 2017, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, in concert with the Southern Poverty Law Center, Jones Walker LLP, and Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, filed a class action lawsuit challenging the State of Louisiana’s failure to provide indigent defendants with effective assistance of counsel in criminal cases. This is the Lawyers' Committee's resource page for the lawsuit.
