CCDC and several members filed a lawsuit to rectify accessibility problems at the Denver Performing Arts Complex that is owned by the City and County of Denver, as well as the Denver Center for Performing Arts, Colorado Symphony, Colorado Ballet and Opera Colorado who also produce events at the Complex.
On February 23, 2009, federal district court judge Marcia Krieger ruled at the Final Fairness Hearing granted the Joint Motion for Order for Final Fairness of Class Action Settlement (see settlement agreement below) and approved the Unopposed Motion for Attorneys Fees and Costs. The City and County of Denver has made the changes to the Opera House required by the agreement. Improvements to wheelchair seating, improvements to the wheelchair lifts, new accessible tables in the Kevin Taylor Restaurant and access improvements to the rest rooms have been accomplished.
