Homeless Sweeps Lawsuit second procedural hearing is this Thursday 10am
@ the ALFRED A. ARRAJ, U.S. FEDERAL COURTHOUSE, 901 19th ST. DENVER, CO 40294 Courtroom A 402 (20th and Champa st)
This is a hearing regarding processes and time lines for the case. There will be a number of these type of hearings. Since there will be a number of procedural hearings we do not expect everyone to show up to all these hearings. There will be very important hearings regarding class certification and preliminary injunction coming soon for which we must pack the house! But…if you can make the hearing on Thursday please do!
We rocked the court house at the first hearing to kick off this class action case and made a strong impression on the Judge! The lawsuit is moving forward and we are making this happen together!
The City is starting to play games. They won’t admit that they used public donations to fund the homeless sweeps in March 2016, they are trying to keep out relevant evidence, and are refusing to even acknowledge that there were homeless sweeps. Your presence in the courtroom Thursday bears witness to what they have done to the most vulnerable people in this city.
