ADA lawsuit against the city of Austin in Texas

| Tuesday, August 14th, 2012 | Comments Off on ADA lawsuit against the city of Austin in Texas

Last week, to correspond with the 22nd anniversary of the signing into law of the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Texas Civil Rights Project filed 33 lawsuits across the state, proving that after more than two decades, there remains no shortage of places and activities inaccessible to the disabled community. The ADA is designed to allow Americans with disabilities to “participate fully in the social and economic life of the community,” says TCRP attorney Joe Berra, but it seems some businesses, and the city of Austin, are falling short of that goal.
