Abstract Class action on behalf of 1500 residents of New Mexico’s two institutions for persons with developmental disabilities. After a lengthy trial, the Court issues a 202 page decision in 1990 finding violations of constitutional and statutory rights, and orders the parties to negotiate corrective action plans. In 1997, the State elected to close both institutions when they failed to implement the remedial plans, and then agreed to sweeping consent decrees requiring expansion of all aspects of New Mexico’s service system. Due to continued noncompliance with these decrees, the Court appointed a community monitor, and then a Rule 706 expert.
