    The proposed settlement of a class action could affect your rights if you are now, ever were, or ever will be detained at the Metropolitan Detention Center.           

    The class action case involves conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center or MDC and allegations that the Bernalillo County is violating the rights of inmates. The county does not agree that it is violating the rights of inmates at the MDC.

     If the court approves the proposed settlement of this case, experts in corrections, medical care, and mental health care will review conditions at the MDC. The experts will report to the court, which will decide if the conditions in and operation of the MDC have improved enough so that the case against the county must be dismissed.  If the case is dismissed, the court will order the county to continue to prevent overcrowding in the jail and take steps regarding classification and housing.

    Please read the notice carefully. Your legal rights may be affected whether you act or don’t act.
