Language Access In State Courts, Laura Abel 2010 Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law

Language Access In State Courts, Laura Abel

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

Almost 25 million people in the U.S. have limited proficiency in English (LEP), meaning that they can protect their rights, children, homes and safety in court only with the assistance of an interpreter. When competent interpreters are not available in civil cases, judges cannot accurately find facts, litigants cannot comply with court orders, the public loses faith in the justice system, and states cannot enforce their civil laws. The federal Civil Rights Act mandates access to interpreters for LEP individuals in all civil cases in courts receiving federal funds. Nonetheless, an in-depth examination of court interpreter services in the ...

Toward A Right To Counsel In Civil Cases In New York State: A Report Of The New York State Bar Association, Laura Abel

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) and 11 other bar associations co-sponsored a 2006 American Bar Association (ABA) resolution that urged federal and state jurisdictions to establish a right to counsel in civil cases concerning basic human needs. This report compares the scope of the existing right to counsel in New York State to the five categories of basic human needs cases identified by the ABA: Cases concerning shelter, sustenance, safety, health or child custody. It also assesses the existing right to counsel in cases concerning members of special or vulnerable populations, and in cases involving deprivation of physical ...

The Tax Injunction Act And Federal Jurisdiction: Reasoning From The Underlying Goals Of Federalism And Comity, David Fautsch 2010 University of Michigan Law School

The Tax Injunction Act And Federal Jurisdiction: Reasoning From The Underlying Goals Of Federalism And Comity, David Fautsch

Michigan Law Review

States routinely contest federal jurisdiction when a state tax is challenged in federal district court on federal constitutional grounds. States argue that the Tax Injunction Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1341 (2006), bars jurisdiction and, even if the Tax Injunction Act does not apply, the principals of federalism and comity require abstention. The United States Supreme Court has not squarely addressed the scope of federalism and comity in relation to the Tax Injunction Act, and federal courts of appeal are split. In the Fourth and Tenth Circuits, federalism and comity require federal district courts to abstain even where the Tax ...
