House Bill Would Limit Drive-by Lawsuits by Amending Title III of Americans with Disabilities Act


ADA Education and Reform Act passed by the House of Representatives

With an 85 percent vote, the ADA Education and Reform Act (HR 620), was passed. The bill requires potential plaintiffs to provide businesses with both notice of architectural barriers as well as an opportunity to remove them during a cure period. This white paper reviews the recent deluge of ADA Title III lawsuits and the attempt to put the brakes on repeat plaintiffs.
