November 25, 2009. The Department of Justice filed an amicus brief in OPA v. CT. DOJ supported OPA's position that individuals with mental illness in Connecticut are forced to remain in nursing homes because DMHAS, DSS and DPH do not provide sufficient services in the community in violation of Title II of the ADA. DOJ also supported OPA's position that we have standing to bring these claims. This amicus brief is part of an effort by DOJ to support Olmstead actions throughout the country.  Amicus Brief (89kb).pdf
