With the Delta variant surging, Denver has issued new public health orders requiring pre-K through 12th-grade students to wear masks at school and requiring city employees and some private-sector workers in high-risk settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The Civil Litigation Section represents the City, City officials, and City employees in a variety of lawsuits, including torts and civil rights actions. Civil Litigation attorneys also provide training, advice, and opinions regarding existing policies, practices and laws to City Departments and Agencies.
The Civil Litigation Section is also responsible for managing and investigating all claims made against the City, except for claims involving Denver International Airport and Human Services, who have their own claim teams. Together, the civil litigation and claims team represent the City and County of Denver in approximately 120 lawsuits and over 600 claims annually.
