Law, Law Enforcement, and Lawyers
Chapter two shows that the Wuhan homeowners, believing in their legitimate documents and rights, organized committees and fought a tug of war with local governments over compensation. Local officials began taking illegal forceful means to intimidate the homeowners, including secret arrests, detainments, and other covert pressures. After repeated failures in persuading lawyers in both Wuhan and Beijing, the residents finally managed to find two audacious local lawyers to accept their case against the city government. The lawsuit filed collectively by over 100 Wuhan residents became the “first administrative lawsuit in 21st century China.”
