About Case Summaries

LSNC Case Summaries is a special project created and maintained by Legal Services of Northern California (LSNC). The editors are all attorneys with Legal Services of Northern California: Gary Smith, Executive Director; Julie Aguilar Rogado, Deputy Director; and Brian Lawlor, Regional Counsel. Your trusted editors periodically summarize select California and Federal court cases of interest to legal services attorneys and other poverty law advocates in California.
