ADA LEGISLATION AT STATE AND FEDERAL LEVELS

The Modesto Bee has been doing a good job following and reporting on issues related to ADA lawsuits in the state.  Although several bills have addressed and reduced the number of frivolous lawsuits over the past two years, the potential for frivolous action is still unacceptably high.  Several bills are moving through at the state and federal (see below) levels to continue to enact sensible reforms that provide access while minimizing legal harassment.

AB 913 (Gray; D-Merced) is one of the state level bills we are supporting.  It deals with Construction-related accessibility claims and extremely high-frequency litigants.  Click here to read the Modesto Bee’s story on the topic which is worth the read for anyone faced with ADA issues.
