Case Study on Social Rights
Reveals Larger Problem of
Defective Legal Representation


We have been studying the case of Gregory Demer for two years.  We reviewed it to learn the dynamics of how the social rights of limited conservatees are violated.  We published a report on our findings in the social rights study in January 2015.

We are now releasing a new report on another dimension of rights violations in the limited conservatorship system -- defective legal representation.  The problem is not isolated to Gregory's case.  It is built into the system itself. 

We have also submitted proposals for new court rules governing all court-appointed attorneys in these cases.  The time for change is now.
