Wilbur v. City of Mount Vernon

This class action challenges the deficient public defense system in the cities of Mount Vernon and Burlington. Excessive caseloads and inadequate monitoring by the cities have resulted in a public defense system that deprives indigent persons of their constitutional right to counsel as guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment.
