Litigation and related campaigns to end excessive workloads have been underway for several years. In March 2020, NAPD General Counsel Steve Hanlon released a Statement to NAPD re the Decision in State v. Spears, as well as a Summary of the Impact of the State v. Spears Decision as it relates to the litigation to end excessive workloads in Louisiana. “NAPD encourages you to check out the Application for Supervisory Writs and this resource of Compiled Exhibits. These materials are suignificant for all systems seeking to analyze and litigate excessive workloads and reflect serious progress to correct what has been public defense's most pressing problem for decades. The majority of this work was funded by Arnold Ventures.
