Professor Bill Quigley quoted in the Washington Post

Professor Bill Quigley, Director of the Law Clinic and the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center, was quoted in the Washington Post discussing the problem of outstanding warrants in the City of New Orleans.  The article explains that there are over 56,000 outstanding warrants in New Orleans Municipal Court - and 1 in 7 adults in the city have a warrant out for their arrest.  While police have discretion whether to enforce the warrant, Professor Quigley explains that these discretionary powers are "always exercised at the expense of people of color and people without economic resources."
