Petition for certiorari denied on February 21, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-746 5th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether a city’s sidewalks, curb ramps, and parking lots – and, by logical extension, other forms of physical infrastructure owned by municipal or state governments – qualify as a “service,” “program,” or “activity” of a public entity within the meaning of Section 202 of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act; and (2) when does a cause of action under those provisions of the ADA and Rehabilitation Act accrue, where the plaintiff’s claims are based on a municipality’s failure to originally build or alter sidewalks or curb ramps so as to provide persons with disabilities with adequate access to a governmental “service,” “program,” or “activity”?
