Drive Down the Debt – Support for the Complaint

Our complaint has not only been covered by dozens of broadcast, print and digital media outlets but many have editorialized favorably in support of the changes sought by our lawsuit.  In addition, the Department of Justice and the Virginia NAACP have both filed amicus briefs to lend their powerful voices supporting the plaintiffs’ claims.  Below are links to the editorial and organization support the Legal Aid Justice Center has received since filing Stinnie v. Holcomb.

Around the time the Legal Aid Justice Center filed its initial complaint in 2016, our work was favorably noted by the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA).    The COSCA report The End of Debtors’ Prisons: Effective Court Policies for Successful Compliance with Legal Financial Obligations mentioned both LAJC’s Driven Deeper into Debt study and the filing of Stinnie v. Holcomb in July 2016.
