Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, et al v. Lakeside Park Company, 1:15-cv-00925-RPM

Issues

In August of 2014, Domino Service Dogs, several individuals who utilize service dogs, and their associates visited Lakeside Amusement Park for the purpose of enjoying the park and training the dogs in a new environment. After purchasing tickets, they were prevented from boarding the Train attraction available at Lakeside, even though there was sufficient space for the dogs to ride, and even though these individuals depend upon their dogs for a variety of essential activities. When the guests began explaining their rights to use the train with their dogs, Lakeside Amusement Park staff called the Town of Lakeside Police Department, who arrived and began to harass and threaten these individuals. These individuals were ultimately unable to utilize the amusement park and had to leave.

Status

On April 30, 2015, the Complaint was filed in United States District Court of Colorado against Krasner Amusement Company, the Town of Lakeside, Colorado and the Town of Lakeside, Colorado Police Department.  A video of this incident is available at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-nfbhsB4FA&feature=em-upload_owner.

CCDC has settled its claims with the Town of Lakeside and has dismissed its claims against the Town, with prejudice.

The case was resolved by a Settlement Agreement with Lakeside Park Company on February 5, 2018, dismissed with prejudice as well.
