The disability pendulum: the first decade of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Author:
COLKER Ruth

Publication year:

245p.
Place of publication:
New York

Signed into law in July 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became effective two years later, and court decisions about the law began to multiply in the middle of the decade. This book presents the first legislative history of the enactment of the ADA in Congress and analyzes the first decade of judicial decisions under the act. It assesses the success and failure of the first ten years of litigation under the ADA, focusing on its three major titles: employment, public entities, and public accommodations. The book argues that despite an initial atmosphere of bipartisan support with the expectation that the ADA would make a significant difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities, judicial decisions have not been consistent with Congress intentions. The courts have operated like a pendulum, at times swinging to a pro-disabled plaintiff and then back again to a pro-defendant stance. The author, whose work on the ADA has been cited by the Supreme Court, offers practical suggestions on where to amend the act to make it more effective in defending disability rights, and also explains judicial hostility toward enforcing the act.

Regulations 3 to 5 set out circumstances for the purposes of Article 32 of, and Schedule 3 to, the Order, where a lessor will be taken to have withheld his consent or to have reasonably or unreasonably withheld his consent to an application to make an alteration to premises made by or on behalf of the service provider. Regulation 6 sets out conditions for the purposes of Article 32 of, and Schedule 3 to, the Order, that it is reasonable for a lessor to attach to a grant of consent to an alteration of premises. Regulation 7 modifies certain provisions of Article 32 of, and Schedule 3 to, the Order, that apply to a landlord who is the service provider's immediate landlord so that they apply to a landlord who is a service provider's superior landlord.
