OTHERWISE: A step forward for mentally impaired facing deportation – NJLJ Editorial Board.
The New Jersey Law Journal Editorial Board has commended the recent decision by federal District Judge Dolly M. Gee, in an ACLU-sponsored class action, to require assistance to the mentally incompetent who face deportation. That assistance may be by lawyers, law students, or otherwise qualified representatives from a social service organization. It is a step forward in the civil Gideon movement. – GWC
