A new round of Big Law firms and legal clinics are committing to a new ACLU project aimed at creating a wave of civil litigation in Louisiana to fight racism in policing, positioning the program to begin filing complaints in spring 2021.

The ACLU of Louisiana last month launched the project, called “Justice Lab: Putting Racist Policing on Trial,” with the goal of getting 100 private law firms and 25 law clinics to file up to 1,000 civil lawsuits alleging racist police actions. Eighteen law firms were on board within a couple of weeks, and the ACLU on Thursday announced the addition of another 16 firms and 14 law school clinics.
