Abstract Equal Justice Under Law successfully settled with the state of Michigan
to ensure that, before the state suspends licenses for unpaid court
debt, individuals are given proper notice and the opportunity to show their inability to pay.

For those unable to pay, an alternative will be arranged, such as community service or workforce development training, and their licenses will no longer be suspended. Without our lawsuit, people in Michigan would continue to be punished for being poor.
