Jessica Blinkhorn v. 101 Center Real Estate, LLC

Case Number: 4:23-cv-00142

Judge: R. Stan Baker

Court: United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia (Chatham County)

Plaintiff's Attorney: Craig Ehrlich

Defendant's Attorney: Sarah Lamar

Description: Savannah, Georgia civil rights lawyer represented the Plaintiff who sued Defendant on an Americans with Disabilities Act Violation theory.

"The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including employment, education, transportation, and public accommodations.

The ADA was enacted in 1990 and has been amended several times since then. It is one of the most comprehensive civil rights laws in the United States.

The ADA defines a disability as a condition that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Major life activities include things like walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, learning, and working.

The ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including:

Employment: The ADA prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals with disabilities in hiring, firing, promotions, and other terms and conditions of employment.
Education: The ADA prohibits schools from discriminating against students with disabilities in admissions, services, and activities.
Transportation: The ADA requires public transportation providers to make their services accessible to individuals with disabilities.
Public accommodations: The ADA requires businesses that are open to the public to make their facilities accessible to individuals with disabilities.
State and local government: The ADA prohibits state and local governments from discriminating against individuals with disabilities in their programs and services.

The ADA also requires employers, schools, and other entities to provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is a change in the way things are done that allows an individual with a disability to participate in an activity. For example, an employer might provide a sign language interpreter for a deaf employee or a wheelchair ramp for an employee who uses a wheelchair.

The ADA is a complex law, and there are many exceptions to the prohibitions on discrimination. If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of a disability, you should speak to an attorney to discuss your legal options.

Here are some of the key provisions of the ADA:

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

The ADA has had a major impact on the lives of people with disabilities. It has helped to ensure that people with disabilities have equal opportunities in all areas of public life.

The ADA is a work in progress, and there is still much work to be done to ensure that people with disabilities are fully integrated into society. However, the ADA has been a major step forward in the fight for disability rights."
