Consent Decrees Status

In 2019, the County entered into two consent decrees to resolve litigation over conditions in the County jails: Chavez v. County of Santa Clara, et. al (U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, Case No. 15-CV-05277-NJV) and Cole v. County of Santa Clara, et. al. (U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, Case No. 16-CV-06594-LHK).  On August 17, 2021, the Board of Supervisors asked County Counsel to prepare a public report on the status of the County’s compliance with these consent decrees.
