U.S. Attorney, NY School District Settle ADA Case

Jul 27, 2014

A lawsuit against a school district in Westchester County over violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act has been settled.

The Viscardi Center today announced the recipients of a new international award designed to identify and honor people living with disabilities for their work and influence on the global disability community of more than one billion people.

The U.S. Department of Justice has reached an agreement with North Adams to improve access for people with disabilities.

Announced Tuesday, the agreement was reached under Project Civic Access, the Justice Department's initiative to ensure that cities, towns and counties throughout the country comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The compliance review began after a complaint that the city's police station was physically inaccessible.
