Carranza v. Reams (2020) 

07-06-2020 11:55 AM

In April 2020, the ACLU of Colorado sued the sheriff of Weld County, alleging that the jail violated the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendment rights of people who are confined in the jail with high risks of complications from Covid-19, including age, chronic health conditions, history of smoking, or pregnancy. Under a preliminary injunction, the court ordered the sheriff to provide a list of medically vulnerable people, and to institute policies that allow minimal distancing, sanitation, and increased monitoring for Covid-19.
