Professor Mead Acts as Co-Counsel with Legal Aid and ACLU in Federal Lawsuit

Professor Joe Mead acted as co-counsel with Legal Aid of Greater Cleveland and the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio to file a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Bedford’s criminal activity nuisance ordinance. The lawsuit draws heavily on the policy report and Cleveland State Law Review  publications (authored by Professor Mead and several of his students) that document how these laws are used to target people who are simply seeking help, people of color, women, people with disabilities, and other protected classes.
Additional information about the lawsuit is available here.
