ACLU Sues Denver For Jail Policy

The ACLU is suing the city of Denver in an effort to obtain the policy and procedure manual for the city's Pre-Arraignment Detention Facility in advance of this Summer's Democratic National Convention.
The ACLU argues the public interest in disclosure of the PADF manual is especially strong in light of the upcoming Democratic National Convention, when large numbers of arrests could overload the system and cause excessive backlogs in processing, and serious problems with access to food, medicine, attorneys, sanitary facilities, and delivery of medical care to vulnerable detainees.
