ADA, Working and Restoring

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is currently going through restoration to restore the original intent of removing barriers that confront disabled Americans.

Supreme Court rulings have made it clear that restructuring the act is necessary. Too often, the case focused on whether the condition qualifies as a protected disability rather than the question of discrimination.

So, what about the original act? The ADA Home Page provides all kinds of information and resources available for help in complying with the ADA, such as guides to the laws and standards for accessible design. If there is a question of non-compliance, there are investigative agencies, service providers, and other resources.

What's New
links to ADA judgments and settlements -- cases involving lodging, sports facilities, doctors, lawyers and more. The case is described from both points of view, and then concluded with dispensation. Towards the end of the list of settlements are links to status reports and briefs.

Very interesting.
