Were you stopped or held by MCSO between 12/23/2011 and 5/25/2013? If deputies detained you solely on the basis that MCSO believed you were in the US without papers, then you qualify for compensation.
About the Clinic:
The ACLU of Arizona and Los Abogados invites victims to attend this free clinic aimed at filling out applications for the Compensation Fund Program. Information will be given about the program and attorneys will be present to assist in the process.
About the Compensation Fund Program:
Starting December 1, 2017, people who were stopped or held by MCSO between December 23, 2011 and May 24, 2013 in violation of the Preliminary Injunction in the Ortega Melendres v. Penzone litigation may apply to participate in a court-ordered compensation program. The Preliminary Injunction prohibited MSCO deputies from detaining a person solely on the basis that MCSO personnel believed the person was in the US without authorization.
