This is to (respectfully) request an @doctorow article about removing the crazy restrictions added by Congress to Legal Services Corporation grants since the 80s.
Those restrictions are a big reason for the "unbundled" legal services trend resulting in low income civil litigants lacking adequate representation.
(No class actions with LSC funds? Really, Congress?)
And many if not most legal issues faced by low income civil litigants require more --- much more --- full representation and assistance, not apps.
Send a partner violence survivor into family court without experienced help and support? Give an elderly person with failing capacity a form FDCPA letter? Try to mediate an eviction action against a slum property manager with a pamphlet? No, no and no.
