PG County Class Action Lawsuit

On behalf of unlawfully detained plaintiffs, CRC along with partners at WilmerHale, and Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP), filed a class action lawsuit challenging Prince George’s County, Maryland’s pretrial detention practices.

Plaintiffs also seek a preliminary and permanent injunction requiring PG County to immediately halt its illegal Practices, as well as money damages for every day of unconstitutional detention for each member of the Plaintiff class.
