Colleague EB reminded me that this week is the 23rd anniversary of the passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act. To celebrate, the Justice Department is posting entries all this week on their blog pointing out successful enforcement of the ADA law.
You'll read about the Justice Department settling a disability discrimination lawsuit in Erie County, New York , getting the State of New York to ensure that people with mental illness not be required to live in New York City's "large institutional adult homes", and suing the state of Florida over ADA violations involving children with disabilities. Those who argue that less government (and less federal regulation) is better may want to think otherwise after reading these examples.
