The US Department of Justice has expanded the number of documents available on their web site. Visit for more information.


U.S. New York Times Editorial: Lane v. Tennessee - Can disabled people be forced to crawl up the courthouse steps? (1/04)


PA Judge Gives Green Light to Lawsuit - A U.S. Middle District Court judge has ruled that a section of the Americans with Disabilities Act covers police practices and that a police department can be sued for failing to train its officers to handle mentally ill and disabled suspects.


Drawing Boundaries - The Supreme Court Is Siding With Employers and Narrowing the Reach of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Is That What its Drafters Had in Mind?


What is the ADA? The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) is a civil rights act designed to protect people with disabilities from discrimination in the areas of employment, access to public services and programs, access to places of public accommodation and telecommunication. The ADA is not an affirmative action law but is intended to give people with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of community life


Where can I get my questions answered about the ADA? ADA INFORMATION LINE: The U.S. Department of Justice provides information about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) through a toll-free ADA Information Line: 800-514-0301 (voice) and 800-514-0383 (TTY)
