REPRESENTATIVE CASES
  • Eidler v. Brookdale Senior Living, Inc.: RBGG and co-counsel filed a federal class action lawsuit in July 2017 accusing Brookdale Senior Living, the largest provider of assisted living for senior citizens and persons with disabilities in the U.S., of financial abuse and widespread violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”).  More than 5,000 residents live in Brookdale’s 89 California assisted living facilities.  This is believed to be the first class action lawsuit against an assisted living provider to be brought under the ADA.
  • Hedrick, et al. v. Grant, et. alRBGG and the UC Davis Civil Rights Clinic represent a class of pre-trial detainees, convicted prisoners, and immigration detainees challenging conditions of confinement at California’s Yuba County Jail.  In 2013, the federal district court denied Yuba’s attempt to terminate a long-standing consent decree requiring the County to maintain certain minimum standards for those incarcerated at the Jail, and the Ninth Circuit affirmed the decision in 2016.  In the fall of 2016, RBGG filed an enforcement motion, seeking to require the County to improve its policies regarding safety cells, suicide screening, out of cell time, intake, and other critical issues, as well as a motion to add claims under the ADA.  Since the spring of 2017, at the district court’s request, the parties have been engaged in court-supervised settlement negotiations.
  • Amici Curiae Brief on Behalf of Advocacy Groups in NIFLA v. Becerra, 16-1140:  In February 2018, RBGG filed an amicus brief on behalf of several California and national advocacy organizations in the U.S. Surpreme Court in an important reproductive rights and First Amendment case challenging California’s Reproductive FACT Act.  The Act requires “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” (CPCs) to disclose whether they are licensed to provide medical care and to non-intrusively notify women who enter their facilities of comprehensive family planning services available through state-funded clinics. The brief supports California’s law by marshaling abundant facts about the epidemic of deceptive and plainly false information pushed by CPCs.
