This guidebook releases research findings by the Disability and Abuse Project regarding the policies and practices of the Los Angeles Superior Court.  It reveals how court guidelines encourage attorneys to violate the rights of people with developmental disabilities in limited conservatorship cases.  The guidebook calls for systemic changes, but until they occur, it suggests ways that attorneys can challenge these guidelines by using advocacy methods consistent with the ethical and constitutional duties and that protect the right of clients to due process of law.
