Newsday.com: La. May Bar Prosecution of Poor Defendants
Newsday.com: La. May Bar Prosecution of Poor Defendants: "The [Louisiana] state Supreme Court ruled judges can halt the prosecution of poor defendants until there is money available to pay for their defernse lawyers, scolding lawmakers for not providing a system to defend the indigent.

Defense attorneys said the ruling could provoke a flurry of legal motions on behalf of poor defendants around Louisiana, which critics contend has one of the worst indigent defense systems in the nation."
