On September 24, 2021, the Wing Luke Civil Rights Division of the Washington Attorney General’s Office (AGO) entered into a Consent Decree with Greyhound Lines, Inc., in the case of State of Washington v. Greyhound Lines, Inc., Spokane County Superior Court No. 20-2-01236-32. The parties filed the Consent Decree with the Court and it has been approved. To learn more about the lawsuit, you can read the State’s complaint, or the Consent Decree.
As part of the Consent Decree, Greyhound has paid $2.2 million, which will provide restitution to passengers impacted by Greyhound’s unlawful conduct. Restitution will be distributed by the AGO to Greyhound customers and passengers who were detained, arrested or deported after immigration agents approached them, or boarded a Greyhound bus, at the Spokane Intermodal Center. The amount of restitution each individual receives will depend on the number of claims and the severity of harms suffered due to Greyhound’s conduct, as determined by the AGO.
The settlement claims process is closed. If you have questions, contact the Attorney General’s Office by phone at 1-833-660-4877 (choose option 8 from the main menu), or by email at Greyhound@atg.wa.gov.
