ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin to grant class-action status to suspected panhandlers arrested or forced off streets by police who used a law that was declared unconstitutional. Expressing doubts about the ability of law-enforcement agencies to comply with court orders, Scheindlin stated that class action was the only to effectively prevent the law from continuing to be enforced nationwide.
