It's 9:00 at night. The Social Security brief is due tomorrow. You want to go home. What's the cite to that Third Circuit case? What to do? Check your CLS Outline, of course!

Community Legal Services of Philadelphia released its new 2004 Disability Under the Social Security Act©. “It’s been a while coming, but we’re confident it's worth the wait. It is the best collection of caselaw available,” said Richard P. Weishaupt, editor of the Outline. David Hill, of Philadelphia Legal Assistance, co-editor, pointed out that the outline has grown from a few pages to its current 71 pages, with cites to almost every reported 3rd Circuit, New Jersey and Pennsylvania District Court case, as well as expanded attention to decisions from other jurisdictions where our courts have yet to address particular questions. The outline also includes a collection of helpful web sites for the first time. “What started out as an internal document has become something much bigger and more authoritative. The Social Security disability bar has come to rely on it.”

The outline is distributed through CLS. It is free to all legal services programs and is available to the public at a cost of $50 to cover costs, including duplication and mailing. Order forms are available on the CLS website, www.clsphila.org, by calling 215-981-3726 or the outline can be obtained by writing to Community Legal Services at 1424 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 19102 and enclosing a check for $50.

“It’s the bible of Social Security Disability law. You should never file a disability brief without consulting the Outline,” says Sharon Gornstein of Leventhal and Sutton.
