CARES Act Litigation in Puerto Rico
Complaint Against Hacienda
In October 2020, we sued the Department of Treasury of Puerto Rico, Hacienda, because they were illegally retaining the distribution of the Economic Impact Payments for those persons in jails and prisons in Puerto Rico. A Court Ordered Hacienda to submit an amendment to the distribution plan authorized by the Federal Department of Treasury to allow the incarcerated persons to receive the EIP funds.
