Brief in Brown v. Tennessee Dept. of Finance and Administration
Today, along with my cocounsel from the Disability Law and Advocacy Center of Tennessee, the National Health Law Program, and the Nashville law firm of Brewer, Krause, Brooks, Chastain & Burrow, I filed this brief for the plaintiffs-appellees in Brown v. Tennessee Department of Finance and Administration. The case is a class action brought on behalf of Tennessee residents with developmental disabilities who were eligible for but denied enrollment in home-and-community-based waiver programs. The state entered into a consent decree a couple of years back, but now it wants out of the deal. Our brief argues that there's no basis for vacating the decree.
