New York’s “inadequate” public defense system

William Glaberson has another article in today’s New York Times on the upcoming class action lawsuit at the Court of Appeals arguing against New york state to overhaul its indigent defense system (William Glaberson, The Right to Counsel, N.Y. Times, Mar. 21, 2010, at LI1). Today’s piece is the “story of this one defendant and her public defender, assembled through interviews and court records. . . about a woman who was barely making it before the legal system helped shove her off track.”
