Updates on DOJ Settlement

June 07, 2012

Two important orders were issued this week by the Court; both are posted with the other information about the Settlement under Provider Resources on the website.  One outlines the Court’s concerns and describes some items which the Judge feels are missing from the Agreement such as assurances that individuals or their representatives have the option of refusing discharge from a Training Center, but not rejecting transfer to another center if they are consolidated.  The other order clarifies the role of Mary Ann Bergeron, Executive Director of VACSB, as the Court’s Expert and lists the questions she is to answer during the hearing.
