DOJ Consent Decree Compliance Deadline Extended

March 22, 2021

It was announced this morning at the Quality Improvement Committee Meeting that the Judge has extended the anticipated compliance date for the end of the Consent Decree from July 1, 2021 to July 1, 2022. 

No surprise to anyone that the Commonwealth is not in complete compliance, but what was a bit of a surprise is that the Commonwealth is drafting a response to the Order requesting an even longer extension. 

That filing and the Court’s response are not yet available.  The Judge’s Order mentioned above can be found here.
