The Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law is calling on President Obama to name a Supreme Court nominee who will uphold the rights of people with disabilities.
From the center’s website:
Despite Congress’s bipartisan passage in 2008 of the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) to restore the law’s broad reach after years of hostile court rulings, judges are still getting the ADA wrong -â€“ still shutting the courthouse door on people with disabilities. We need a leader every bit as strong as Justice Stevens to ensure full enforcement of the ADA and other important disability rights laws. Justice Stevens’ replacement must be committed to the protection of disability rights.
