Ten homeless individuals and Denver Homeless Out Loud filed a class-action suit in federal court on October 5 against Denver and more than fifty other individuals, agencies and organizations over the sweeps of encampments that have occurred in the city so far this year. The case, which was announced near a homeless encampment scheduled for a sweep this morning, claims that the actions violate provisions of the Fourth and Fourteenth amendments as well as aspects of the Colorado Constitution.
