All this week and perhaps longer our Intro to Law class is dealing with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It should be a very interesting week, because this legislation is very interesting. It seems, at least to me, to be a dramatic reversal of the federal courts’ trend towards actively seeking out cases that allow them to set precedent for changes with regard to issues of social justice. In fact, the courts were, at least initially, very reluctant to expand the power of the ADA. I see both sides of this issue and have certainly thought about it before, so hopefully class tomorrow and the rest of the week will help me to clarify a bit. Yay, education! đŸ˜‰
