After almost three years of litigation, all issues relating to trial will be addressed at the final pretrial conference on March 1st. Prior to the hearing there will be a rally with speakers, food and more outside the courthouse. Homeless Plaintiff Class members will speak about the violation of their constitutional rights in the City of Denver.

The lawsuit is against the City and County of Denver for violating homeless people’s 4th and 14th amendment rights when conducting sweeps and seizing people’s property. Evidence has been brought in this case over the past 3 years showing an ongoing practice by the city of sweeps where homeless people’s property is seized.

 

Due to the cities violation of constitutional rights the City has spent great amounts of money litigating this case. The City will continue to face the possibility of more lawsuits if they continue to violate constitutional rights.

Trial is set to begin March 19, 2019. Stay tuned.
