Knoxville nonprofit Lawyers Education Advocacy Group has won the right to offer free legal services during truancy cases in the lobby of the Knox County Juvenile Court, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Their request last year to distribute literature on legal rights and offer free legal representation in the court was denied. "We are pleased that Knox County is now allowing the Lawyers Education Advocacy Project access to young people who need help," American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee legal director Thomas H. Castelli said.
