Wheelchairs on buses not always secured

Screen Shot 2013-03-04 at 5.07.24 PMLOS ANGELES (KABC) — It’s tough enough for most of us to get around L.A., but imagine if you were confined to a wheelchair and forced to rely on public transportation. The L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) says safety is its first priority for the millions of bus and rail-car riders it serves every year. But disabled riders who spoke to ABC7 Eyewitness News tell a much different story. In a two-month undercover investigation, we attached hidden cameras to the wheelchairs of some of those riders. We found violations of federal civil rights law, and some drivers putting the lives of their passengers at risk.

Law School Admission Council Suit Becomes National Class Action

Law School Admission Council Suit Becomes National Class Action

ADA News
ADA News

In October of 2012, a federal judge issued an order allowing the U.S. Justice Department to intervene in a disability discrimination lawsuit against the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). The department’s intervention expands the case from a statewide class action limited to California residents to a nationwide pattern or practice lawsuit.

The lawsuit, California Department of Fair Employment and Housing v. LSAC Inc. et al., charges LSAC with widespread and systemic deficiencies in the way it processes requests by people with disabilities for testing accommodations for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). As a result, the lawsuit alleges, LSAC fails to provide testing accommodations where needed to best ensure that those test takers can demonstrate their aptitude and achievement level rather than their disability.
