After years of unconscionable business practices authorized under the law, it is past time for the 14(c) program to end.
In collaboration with co-author Justin Salisbury, an advocate for the rights of blind people, Robin Lipp published an article in the Legal Intelligencer explaining the history of the program, its poor and discriminatory results, and a direction for the future.
