Case Summary

On October 22, 2014, current and former civil immigration detainees housed at the Aurora Detention Facility filed this class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. The plaintiffs sued The GEO Group, Inc., a private company that provides detention and correction services under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) 18 U.S.C. § 1589, and state law. The plaintiffs, represented by several public interest law firms, sought monetary damages. The plaintiffs alle…

On October 22, 2014, current and former civil immigration detainees housed at the Aurora Detention Facility filed this class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. The plaintiffs sued The GEO Group, Inc., a private company that provides detention and correction services under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) 18 U.S.C. § 1589, and state law. The plaintiffs, represented by several public interest law firms, sought monetary damages. The plaintiffs alleged that GEO violated Colorado's Minimum Wage Order (CMWO) when the company paid its detained employees a dollar a day for their labor and violated 18 U.S.C. § 1589 by forcing the detainees to clean the "pods" where they were housed without compensation. They further alleged that GEO threatened to put those who refused to work (for no pay) in "the hole" (solitary confinement). The case was assigned to Magistrate Judge Craig B. Shaffer. On November 14, 2014, the case was re-assigned to Senior U.S. District Judge John L. Kane.

On November 14, 2014, GEO filed a motion to dismiss all three claims.

On July 6, 2015, Judge Kane dismissed the CMWO claim but not the federal forced labor/unjust enrichment claims. 113 F.Supp.3d 1125. The CMWO applied to employers and employees in four industries: (1) Retail and Service; (2) Commercial Support Service; (3) Food and Beverage; and (4) Health and Medical. 7 Colo. Code Regs. 1103-1:1. The plaintiffs alleged that the defendant was a "Health and Medical" employer, a "Food and Beverage" employer, and a "Retail and Service" employer. Although it was not necessary to reach the question of whether the defendant was an "employer" under the CMWO, Judge Kane concluded that the plaintiffs were not employees. Because enforcing Colorado's minimum wage laws was consistent with the purpose and the text of the Service Contract Act ("SCA"), Judge Kane decided that the SCA did not preempt the plaintiff's claim under the Colorado Minimum Wage Order. Also, Judge Kane did not dismiss the plaintiffs' unjust enrichment claim. Although the claim appeared to be largely based on the plaintiffs' CMWO claim, and therefore the plaintiffs would have had an adequate remedy at law, the CMWO claim was dismissed and not available. The plaintiffs were permitted to plead in the alternative. 113 F.Supp.3d 1125 (D. Colo. 2015).

On March 17, 2016, Judge Kane denied the defendant's motion for interlocutory appeal with respect to the plaintiffs' TVPA claim because the defendant did not identify any split in authority or any cases conflicting with the court's application of the statute. The court also denied the defendant's motion for interlocutory appeal with respect to the plaintiffs' unjust enrichment claim, as the defendant raised this issue for the first time in its motion for reconsideration. The court further denied the defendant's motion for interlocutory appeal with respect to the defendant's government contractor defense. Judge Kane also denied the request for a stay pending appeal as moot.

On May 6, 2016, the plaintiffs moved for class certification (2016 WL 2727839), which was granted on February 27, 2017. 320 F.R.D. 258. The classes were certified as follows:

  1. all persons detained in defendant's aurora detention facility in the ten years prior to the filing of this action (for TVPA's forced labor claim);
  2. all people who performed work defendant's aurora detention facility under defendant's voluntary work program "VWP" policy in the three years prior to the filing of this action (unjust enrichment claim).

On March 13, 2017, the defendant filed a petition for permission to appeal the District Court's grant of class certification. After the Tenth Circuit granted this petition, the defendant filed an interlocutory appeal on April 14, 2017 (case number 17-1125).

In the appellate court, on August 11, 2017, several immigrant rights and civil rights groups (including the Southern Poverty Law Center, Public Citizen, Inc., National Employment Law Project, American Immigrants for Justice, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Detention Watch Network, Human Rights Defense Center, Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Justice Strategies, Legal Aid at Work, National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, National Guestworker Alliance, National Immigrant Justice Center, National Immigration Law Center and Pangea Legal Services among others) filed amicus curiae briefs. On November 15, 2017, the appeal was argued in front of Circuit Judges Matheson, Bacharach and McHugh.

The Tenth Circuit affirmed the district court certification of both classes on February 9, 2018. 882 F.3d 905 (10th Cir. 2018). The Appellate Court held that the lower court reasonably determined that the class members could show causation through class-wide inference and that individual damage assessments would not predominate over the class's common issues. The defendant asked for re-hearing but the 10th circuit denied the request on March 5, 2018. Following the Tenth Circuit decision, District Judge Kane referred the case to Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty for discovery and settlement proceedings.

On June 4, 2018, the defendant filed a petition for a writ of certiorari to the Supreme Court of the United States. That petition was denied on October 1, 2018.

The parties engaged in discovery and settlement negotiations throughout 2019 and early 2020. On April 29, 2020, the plaintiffs moved for summary judgment as to GEO's affirmative defenses. GEO cross-moved for summary judgment two months later. In mid-August, the defendants also filed motions for summary judgment and to dismiss for failure to join a required party (ICE) as to the plaintiffs' unjust enrichment and TVPA claims. GEO further moved to decertify the class. As of March 26, 2022, the court had yet to reach a decision on the pending motions and the case was ongoing.
