Defending Idahoans' right to a constitutional public defense system.
The ACLU of Idaho's Legal Department files lawsuits in federal and state courts throughout Idaho. We rely on Idahoans to report civil liberties violations when they happen so that the Legal Department can identify major threats to freedom in Idaho and respond with action to vindicate fundemental rights enshrined in the Bill of Rights, the United States Constitution, and Idaho's own laws and Constitution. The legal talent of pro bono cooperating attorneys is crucial to our success in the courts.
