California Outpaces Other States in ADA Lawsuits
Feb 19, 2014
California is home to more federal disability lawsuits than the next four states combined.
Depending on who’s telling the story—the enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act in California is either working as intended to ensure equal access for the disabled, or it’s in desperate need of reform to reduce the number of lawsuits over technical violations of the law.
One thing is clear: the number of federal ADA lawsuits filed in the Golden State far outpaces any other state in the nation. Small businesses are sometimes caught between the threat of lawsuits and the challenge of inscrutable building codes.
