A Review of Conflicting Court Cases Related to the ADA

Wednesday, September 20, 2023
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time Zone


Join us for a review of conflicting case decisions addressing similar ADA issues as well as cases that may depart from a common understanding of the ADA. We will discuss cases that cause a current split between Federal courts and other cases that stand alone while causing controversy or confusion. As we cross into the 34th year of the ADA, our aim is to foster better understanding of how courts interpret the various non-discrimination standards affecting employment, public accommodations, transportation, education, and public entities. We will take a closer look at some of the trending issues today--such as the job reassignment accommodation problem, whether web sites are places of public accommodation, whether a plaintiff must suffer an injury before they can file a lawsuit, and other interesting decisions that may depart from traditional understandings of the ADA.

Questions for presenters:

1 Is helping
2 With emotional support animals not being covered under ADA; why can't the DOJ go against all all of these online "registration/certification of emotional support and emotional service dogs"? People are paying over $1,000 in some cases for a 30 minute training video, vest, and "buttons"; then $100 a year to say registered/certified.
