Arizona AG Moves to Dismiss More Than 1,000 ADA Lawsuits


The East Valley (AZ) Tribune reports that the Arizona Attorney General’s office “plans to file a motion to dismiss more than 1,000 lawsuits filed against Arizona businesses that accuse them of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.” The Tribune adds that “the Attorney General’s action is the last leg of a strategy to attack the suits filed by Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities” after “a judge made it possible to dismiss the suits by issuing a ruling that consolidated 1,106 cases.” Peter Strojnik, “the attorney who filed the suits on the behalf of the foundation, has said he took the action to enforce the law because government agencies, specifically the Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Department of Justice, had failed to do so.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.
