Our Biggest Win of the Year
On Friday, May 12, LSA won the kind of victory that makes us remember why our work is vitally needed. The Court of Civil Appeals ruled in our favor and restored a long standing legal principle in Alabama that low wage working people get to protect the first $1000 of income from garnishment. The Alabama Constitution has guaranteed the working poor that basic security for over a century, but for two years, LSA has been fighting adverse rulings that called this important right into question.
