This putative class action alleged that the City of Denver, Colorado, has discriminated against individuals with mobility disabilities by failing to install and maintain curb ramps that are necessary to make its pedestrian right of way readily accessible to people with mobility disabilities.
The case alleged that these failures violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. CREEC is co-counseling with the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition. The case was filed in Denver District Court as Case No. 2016CV030247.
The parties to the lawsuit have negotiated a proposed settlement that resolves claims relating to inaccessible curb ramps for individuals who use wheelchairs or scooters. The Court granted preliminary approval of the class action settlement on March 9, 2016. More information on this settlement can be found at the links below.
