Abstract In partnership with the advocacy organization Supporters of Developmentally Disabled New Mexicans, we filed a lawsuit in 1987 seeking to close two large, state-run institutions in New Mexico housing 500 people with developmental disabilities. The institutions, Fort Stanton Hospital and Training School and Los Lunas Hospital and Training School, unnecessarily segregated their residents from the community in frequently dangerous conditions.
