I was born two weeks after the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. As a person with cerebral palsy in his late 20s, I can now see how much the ADA has affected my life, from ensuring that my education is accommodating to expanding physical access. So when I heard that there were serial litigants suing numerous businesses under the ADA, I was fascinated, disturbed and knew that I needed to know more. Were these lawsuits the result of a law that has rendered the government toothless, or was the backlash against these lawsuits the very reason why the law isn’t stronger? The answer is of course nebulous. But what is for certain is that as long as the government lacks the power to enforce accessibility, there will be serial litigants, there will be major pushback from business against accessibility regulation, and the ADA will become less and less about ensuring accessibility for all Americans.
