Study examines litigation against state and local governments under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 to assess the way in which federal courts have enforced the mandate against discrimination on the basis of disabilities by subnational governments. Results show that plaintiffs are moderately successful in their suits against public entities, especially when compared to their record in litigating against private employers. However the courts, particularly at appellate level, have still exercised a good deal of restraint about interfering in the disability policies of subnational governments.
