Case Summary

On March 18, 2021, the Center for Legal Advocacy, d/b/a Disability Law Colorado (“DLC”), a federally mandated protection and advocacy (“P&A”) organization for the State of Colorado, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.

On March 18, 2021, the Center for Legal Advocacy, d/b/a Disability Law Colorado (“DLC”), a federally mandated protection and advocacy (“P&A”) organization for the State of Colorado, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. DLC sued the Colorado Department of Corrections (“CDOC”) under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, seeking injunctive relief. DLC brought suit in its representative capacity on behalf of and to vindicate the rights of deaf and hard of hearing (DHOH) people incarcerated in CDOC’s custody. DLC claimed that CDOC violated the ADA and Section 504 by failing to provide equally effective communication and equal access to prison programs, services, and activities at every stage of incarceration.

The case was assigned to Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter and then later reassigned to Judge R. Brooke Jackson.

On May 24, 2021, CDOC filed a letter on a motion to dismiss. On May 25, Judge Jackson addressed this letter in a minute order advising that a motion to dismiss would be a waste of time and resources but that the complaint went beyond what is necessary to make a short and plain statement of the claim under Rule 8(a)(2). The court advised that a Rule 12(b)(6) motion would be unlikely to be granted and recommended that the parties pursue mediation and that DLC revise their complaint.

On August 17, 2021, DLC filed an amended complaint, shortening the pleading while maintaining the core allegations and claims from their original complaint.

As of October 2021, the case is ongoing.

MINUTE ORDER re: 22 Letter filed by Center for Legal Advocacy, 21 Letter filed by Colorado Department of Corrections. The Court has reviewed the parties' letters, ECF Nos. 21 and 22. A motion to dismiss would be a waste of time and resources that would better be devoted to addressing the issues raised in the Complaint. I agree that the Complaint is long and goes beyond what is necessary to make a short and plain statement of the claim per Rule 8(a)(2). It is obviously the product of a great deal of work, and it is well-written, but it is a more like a legal brief than a complaint in places, particularly in its early parts. The Court suggests and requests that the parties participate in a mediation with a professional mediator now. If the parties cannot afford the cost, the Court is willing to appoint someone from its Pro Bono Mediation Panel, comprised of top litigators and mediators in metro Denver who volunteer their services when needed to serve indigent litigants. Then, after a mediation session during which you will at a minimum get to know the other party's situation better, if you have not agreed on a settlement, then the plaintiffs are requested to amend the Complaint and trim it down quite a bit. The Court understands the reaction of plaintiffs to the proliferation of motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim in the post-Twombly/Iqbal era, but the Court does not find a 100-page complaint to be necessary or compliant with the Rule. The Court likewise does not anticipate that a Rule 12(b)(6) motion would be granted in this case. Construing the allegations in plaintiffs' favor, it does state claims. By Judge R. Brooke Jackson on 5/25/2021. Text Only Entry (rbjsec. ) (Entered: 05/25/2021)
