Court Action for Migrants.
Ewald, Thomas R.
Aiding attorneys who represent migrant farmworkers and their families when affirmative civil action is required, this book helps to raise the level of migrants' legal protection to a minimum standard of adequacy. The text is based on the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, a national set of rules. The book is divided into 3 sections: the identification and discussion of the 5 most important types of migrants' civil cases involving access to migrant labor camps, retaliatory firing and eviction, regulatory statutes, benefit programs, and contracts; the discussion of preliminary considerations in Federal civil suits on behalf of migrants; and the discussion of procedure in migrants' cases. Also included are 35 illustrative forms and 6 affidavits from an access case. (PS)
