Abstract Shortly after opening its doors in 1975, Juvenile Law Center joined this class action lawsuit as lead counsel. Initially filed in 1974 by Community Legal Services and Philadelphians for Equal Justice, this case sought to end overcrowding and abusive conditions at Philadelphia’s Youth Study Center, the city’s maximum-security pre-trial juvenile detention center. Various pieces of the litigation were settled over time, with the last settlement agreement reached in 1989.
