Fox & Robertson uses the tools of the legal system to promote civil rights and especially the rights of disabled people.
We are currently working on a number of cases on behalf of incarcerated people with disabilities, including litigation on behalf of the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado and blind incarcerated people against the Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC) and litigation on behalf of Deaf people against the CDOC and the Tennessee Department of Correction. We continue to work with the ACLU National Prison Project and the ACLU of Montana to monitor the Langford settlement on behalf of disabled people incarcerated in the Montana State Prison.
F&R also works to ensure that the built environment is accessible to disabled people. We are currently in litigation against the city of Baltimore to ensure access to its aging, broken, or nonexistent curb ramps and recently reached an agreement with the city of Boston on the same subject. We are currently investigating the availability of on street parking in Denver in light of its decision to move parking away from the curb to accommodate bicycles and to block curb areas with fences and rocks to discourage camping.
Tim and Amy are supporting Bill Lann Lee, the court-appointed Monitor in the landmark fair housing settlement in Independent Living Center of Southern California v. City of Los Angeles.
Finally, we enjoy working with other lawyers and community members to draft amicus briefs and in fact relaunched FoxRob 2.0 with an amicus brief to the Supreme Court, urging the Court not to gut the protections of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
