The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, telecommunications, and government services. It was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990.

The ADA is one of the most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation ever enacted in the United States. It has had a profound impact on the lives of millions of Americans with disabilities, providing them with the opportunity to participate fully and equally in society.

The ADA's five major titles are:

Title I: Employment
Title II: State and Local Government Services
Title III: Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities
Title IV: Telecommunications
Title V: Miscellaneous Provisions

The ADA has been instrumental in dismantling the barriers that have historically excluded people with disabilities from participating in society. It has also helped to raise awareness of disability issues and to promote greater understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities.

The ADA is a vital law that protects the rights of people with disabilities. It is an important part of our nation's commitment to equality and justice for all.

Outcome: Settled for an undisclosed sum and dismissed with prejudice.
