Haslam Announces Dismissal of Clover Bottom Lawsuit, 22 Years Later

Gov. Bill Haslam announced today the dismissal of the Clover Bottom lawsuit, ending two decades of litigation and court oversight of intellectual disabilities services in the state, Humphrey on the Hill reports from a state Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities release. The case was first filed in 1995 over the conditions at three state development centers, including Clover Bottom in Nashville. U.S. District Chief Judge Waverly Crenshaw dismissed the case after he found that the state had complied with all conditions of a court approved plan to improve services and quality of life for citizens with disabilities.
