The CCDC Legal Program represents a man who is deaf against Westerra Credit Union. On September 8, 2014, the Legal Program sent Westerra a letter alleging that Westerra violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to accept and/or transfer to supervisors relay telephone calls from deaf or hard of hearing individuals.
We have reached a settlement agreement with Westerra Credit Union which requires that they treat relay calls in the same manner that they treat any other calls. They have agreed to pay damages to the plaintiff as well as attorneys’ fees to CCDC. The settlement agreement is attached.
