Excellent op-ed by Mary Fairhurst, former Chief Justice of the Washington State Supreme Court, and Fred Rivera, general counsel for the Seattle Mariners, calling for substantial and sustained government support for civil legal aid as part of short- and long-term policy responses to COVID-19 at all levels.
