Case Issue: Was the court's finding that Plaintiffs failed to establish "systemic deficiencies" in the manner in which the District of Columbia enrolls nursing home residents into the exisitng home and community-based services against the weight of the evidence?
Did the court commit legal error by holding that it cannot craft class-wide injunctive relief if class members who have suffered discrimination cannot all benefit from the relief provided due to individualized cirumstances (e.g., some have homes to which to return and others do not)?
