New High Impact Project Case Seeks Relief For Blind And Visually Impaired Individuals

The Drinker Biddle High Impact Project operates under the auspices of the Foundation.

On March 25, 2013, a class lawsuit was filed by a team of Drinker Biddle & Reath lawyers from its Washington and Philadelphia offices in partnership with a team of lawyers from the National Center for Law and Economic Justice to obtain relief for blind and visually impaired individuals in New York City who do not obtain adequate information from New York City and New York State agencies about their Medicaid or Food Stamp benefits.

The class is suing the New York City Human Resources Administration, the New York State Office of Temporary Disability Assistance, the New York State Department of Health, and the Commissioners of these agencies. See here for further information about this very noteworthy lawsuit.
