Lawyers reject legal aid idea
The director of the Erie-Huron Community Action Commission (CAC) today charged the Huron County Bar Association with “lack of foresight,” after the bar stymied efforts of the CAC to gain a legal aid program.
The director, Emerson Cole, said “It’s really kind of pathetic...that they do not deal with the disadvantaged.”
Cole had asked for the bar’s endorsement of the program which was a major obstacle to clear before Washington would fund money for the program.
In a letter to Cole, the bar said, “No need for such a program has been demonstrated which would justify expenditures in excess of $32,000 per year.
The program would have hired a full-time attorney to give legal counseling to those in poverty income brackets.
