  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

  • James Fisher spoke at the ACLU of Colorado Bill of Rights Dinner about how he and the ACLU are working together to stop the criminalization of poverty for the thousands of Coloradans who are trapped in debtors’ prisons.

At a hearing set for Monday April 13 in the Weld County Courthouse, Judge James Hiatt is expected to announce his ruling on the ACLU’s request for a preliminary injunction in the class action case that challenges the investigation law enforcement authorities have called “Operation Number Games.”

The ACLU’s lawsuit, filed on behalf of Amalia Cerrillo and a class of approximately 5000 of her tax-preparation clients, alleges that Weld County Sheriff John Cooke and District Attorney Ken Buck are violating the privacy rights of thousands of law-abiding taxpayers by keeping copies of confidential information obtained in an illegal search of Ms. Cerrillo’s tax preparation service.

After hearing two days of evidence and legal argument on March 10 and 11, Judge Hiatt said he would announce his ruling at the April 13 hearing, set for 10:30 a.m. in Courtroom 11.

WHEN: April 13, 2009, at 10:30 a.m.

WHERE: Courtroom 11, Plaza West, Weld County Courthouse, 910 10th Avenue, Greeley, CO
