Since our founding in 2014, Equal Justice Under Law has litigated 30 cases challenging wealth inequality in our justice system in 14 states. 18 of our cases have successfully reached settlement. Our work has achieved policy reform across 9 states and the District of Columbia and helped fuel reform efforts in California and Michigan.
