Abstract The ACLU Foundation of Northern California has filed a lawsuit against California’s Department of State Hospitals (DSH) and Department of Developmental Services (DDS) for violating the constitutional rights of defendants who have been declared incompetent to stand trial due to having a psychiatric or intellectual disability. The lawsuit demands that the state reduce the lengthy delays that these defendants face in being transferred from county jail to the proper treatment facilities.
