Newspaper published by legal aid first in nation to obtain general circulation status

Client(s) Legal Aid Society of Orange County

Jones Day represented the Legal Aid Society of Orange County in obtaining orders adjudicating its weekly publication, "The Notice," as a newspaper of general circulation in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Only a handful of newspapers in Los Angeles and Orange Counties have ever obtained that designation. The Notice is the first newspaper published by a Legal Aid entity ever to receive adjudication, which will enable it to accept legal notices and advertising and generate substantial revenue to support its core mission of providing pro bono legal services to the indigent.
