In 2015, Gilead purchased a single-family property in Cromwell that it intended to use as a group home for six men with disabilities. While such a home is permitted by-right under state law in any residential neighborhood, Defendants responded to community opposition by using the full weight of their authority to force Gilead to close down the home. In December 2019, a federal court issued a landmark ruling permitting Plaintiff Gilead Community Services’ disability discrimination claims to proceed to trial against the Town of Cromwell, Connecticut and held that Plaintiffs could pursue their punitive damages claims against the Town. Trial is set for October 2021.
