Jensen Settlement

The Jensen Settlement Agreement is the result of a lawsuit filed against the DHS in 2009 alleging that residents of the former Minnesota Extended Treatment Options (METO) program were unlawfully and unconstitutionally secluded and restrained. The Jensen Settlement Agreement allowed the department and the plaintiffs to resolve the claims in a mutually agreeable manner. The Comprehensive Plan of Action outlines the path that the department will take to come into compliance with the terms of the agreement.
