Legal services organizations turning away poor facing foreclosures

A recent USA Today article mentioned two HLS graduates, Dan Lindsey and Melanca Clark, in a story focusing on the dearth of legal service attorneys available to poor people facing foreclosure. The article focuses on a report done by the Brennan Center for Justice, an organization based out of New York University Law School. Dan Lindsey is currently supervising a foreclosure program in Chicago and was a source for the report, and Melanca Clark, a lawyer at the Brennan Center for Justice, is one of the report’s authors.
