The Civil Legal Assistance Clinic has had a busy and successful year with its litigation. Here are a just a few examples:

  • Students reached a favorable settlement in a Title VII case against a local business that had previously allowed sexual harassment to go uncorrected.
  • Students filed a lawsuit on behalf of a young mother whose security deposit was being unlawfully withheld by her landlord, and compelled the landlord to return the full deposit
  • Students represented a worker whose employer had fought to deny him employment security benefits. The employer claimed the worker had quit when in fact the company actually fired him. The students successfully represented their client in an appeals hearing and obtained full employment security benefits on his behalf.
