  • Tennessee v. Lane Anniversary – Accessible Courtrooms and Title II of the ADA | Day In Washington
    Supreme Court decided another famous disability case Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama v Garrett 2001 usually just referred to as Garrett In that case the Supreme Court stated that Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act did not allow people with disabilities to sue states for discrimination on the basis of disability for money damages The disability community was now worried that when Tennessee v Lane came before the Supreme Court a similar decision would take place and the Americans with Disabilities Act would be forever weakened The Supreme Court Justices were evenly divided four and four Justice Stevens lead one group saying that the Lane case was different from the Garrett case because the it concerned a court and therefore could be seen as enforcing a core component of the U S Constitution the backbone of all American law the Fourteenth Amendment s access to due process in criminal justice which would include access to the courts Justice Stevens also believed that over the years there had been plenty of evidence to show that people with disabilities were being denied that right because of inaccessible courtrooms The other side was lead by Chief Justice Rehnquist who said that there really was not a lot of specific evidence of inaccessibility of courthouses In addition he argued that the Constitution requires that everyone have a right to access to a courtroom but that it wasn t necessarily a Constitutional right to an accessible courtroom George Lane had not been denied his rights because Tennessee had offered to carry him into the courtroom The key vote in the case was Justice Sandra Day O Connor s She joined with Justices Stevens Souter Ginsburg and Breyer making the final vote 5 4 in favor George Lane People with disabilities had a right to accessible courtrooms We usually think about discrimination and the Americans with Disabilities Act ADA and how much more accessible the country has become since the orginal passage of the law in 1990 But looking back sometimes it is good to remember how very close things came to never happening at all If George Lane had never filed his lawsuit if Sandra Day O Conner had not voted the way she had things may have been very very different To find out more about this important case in disability history check out Tennessee v Lane The Legal Issues and the Implications for People with Disabilities Supreme Court Oral Arguments for Tennessee v Lane Tennessee v Lane from Wikipedia Tags accessible ADA Americans with Disabilities Act anniversary court courthouse discrimination due process elevator garrett lane supreme tennessee title i title ii wheelchair Post navigation SB 1070 Immigrants African Americans and People with Disabilities A Historical Perspective How the Affordable Care Act health reform will Benefit People with Disabilities 1 comment for Tennessee v Lane Anniversary Accessible Courtrooms and Title II of the ADA Pingback Tweets that mention Tennessee v Lane Anniversary Accessible Courtrooms and Title II of the
