I was surprised to receive a letter from a law firm in San Francisco. In the course of reviewing public court records, the law firm learned that I had filed a proper lawsuit challenging the practicies of the California Department of Corrections. It's considering filing a lawsuit under the Americans with Disabilities Act on behalf of inmates with psychiatric disabilities. The law firm asked me for documentation that may help its litigation.
I would be glad to help them. However, my case did not deal with disabilities. It's good to know that there are law firms interested in helping prisoners with mental illness. There are plenty of prisoners with disabilities in the prison system. They're often defenseless against discrimination and abuse.
There's a dire need for attorneys and law firms to do more pro bono representation.
