Zoning Laws & Methadone Treatment


Third Circuit reply brief filed

The attorneys at McGuire Woods filed a reply brief on behalf of the RHJ Medical Center in their case against the City of Dubois. The original claim by RHJ, a methadone treatment center, asserted that the City of Dubois illegally and unconstitutionally applied zoning ordinances to prevent the center’s operations.

The reply brief contends that the City of DuBois failed to provide any support for the District Court’s previous incorrect determinations. Therefore, the attorneys at McGuire Woods seek for the Court of appeals to reverse the decision of the District Court entering judgment in favor of the City on RHJ’s claims under the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act. In addition, the reply brief argues that the case should be remanded to the District Court for entry of judgment in favor of RHJ.
