About the case

A group of deaf inmates filed suit against Clark County Jail for its failure to provide disability services as required under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Among other failures, the jail did not provide working telephones to its deaf inmates, and it did not have notification systems that the deaf inmates could understand.  PCVA Law settled the case in April 2016 on behalf of the deaf inmates for $351,000.00.
