Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an action under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act regarding defendants' alleged failure to accommodate plaintiff's disabilities when she was visiting her incarcerated spouse, dismissal of the complaint is reversed where: 1) plaintiff alleged that she was discriminatorily denied a reasonable accommodation for her disability in violation of her rights under the two acts, and thus had Article III standing; and 2) the district court failed to address whether plaintiff had sufficiently alleged that defendants administered the inmate visitor program in a discriminatory fashion, despite this issue being at the core of her complaint.
