ADA Case Set To Go Before Supreme Court
[Source: Disability Scoop]
The U.S. Supreme Court will weigh in on the rights of people with disabilities to sue under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The high court said this week that it would take up a case known as Acheson Hotels, LLC v. Laufer. At issue is whether individuals with disabilities have standing to sue a business under the ADA if they have no intention of actually visiting the establishment.
The case originated when Deborah Laufer, a Florida resident who has a vision impairment and uses a cane or wheelchair, sued Acheson Hotels alleging that the website of the Coast Village Inn and Cottages in Wells, Maine did not offer adequate information about accommodations for people with disabilities as required under the ADA.
