Roulan v. County of Onondaga, 62

The lower court properly dismissed plaintiff attorney's claims challenging the county bar association's Assigned Counsel Program (ACP), where: 1) plaintiff lacks standing to challenge how the ACP Plan deals with the provision of counsel to unemancipated minors in adult criminal court; and 2) the ACP Plan does not take away from the courts the ultimate authority to determine assigned counsel's compensation; it merely provides for a preliminary review and recommendation, which individual trial judges are free to accept or reject.
