CONSENT ORDER

 

A. Background

1. The United States has filed this action to enforce title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the "ADA" or the "Act"), 42 U.S.C. §§ 12181 through 12189, against Dover Downs Entertainment, Inc., the owner and operator of Dover Downs International Raceway at 1131 North Dupont Highway, Dover, Delaware ("the racetrack," "raceway" or "Dover Downs").

2. The United States alleges that Edward Guistwite, Sr., an individual with a disability, attended a NASCAR/Winston Cup race at Dover Downs on May 14, 1994, at which time architectural barriers to access prevented or restricted his access to certain parts of the facility and to the goods and services provided there. As a result of Dover Downs failure to remove certain architectural barriers where it is readily achievable to do so and to make alterations and the path of travel to these alterations readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities, Mr. Guistwite suffered distress, frustration and inconvenience at Dover Downs.

3. On or about December 6, 1994, representatives of the United States Department of Justice visited and inspected Dover Downs, as part of its investigation of the raceway conducted pursuant to the Department of Justice's authority to investigate alleged violations of the Act by entities covered by title III of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. § 12188(b)(1)(A)(i). The Dover Downs facility was originally constructed in 1968-1969. Since that time, numerous additions and modifications have been made to the facility.

4. As a result of its investigation, including its inspection of the raceway, the Department of Justice determined that several features, elements, and spaces of Dover Downs did not fully comply with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design, 28 C.F.R. Part 36, Appendix A ("the Standards"), and were thereby not readily accessible to or usable by individuals with disabilities.

5. In response to the concerns raised by the Department of Justice and in order to fully cooperate with the Department of Justice investigation, Dover Downs hired an architectural consulting firm to conduct a thorough review of the raceway facility. The various features, elements and spaces of Dover Downs that have been identified as not being in compliance with the Standards are attached hereto as Exhibit 1.

6. In an effort to resolve their differences expeditiously and without the burden, expense and delay of litigation, plaintiff United States and defendant Dover Downs have engaged in good faith negotiations. As a result of these negotiations, these parties have agreed to enter into this Consent Order.

7. As specified below, defendant Dover Downs agrees to remedy each of the violations of the Standards set out in Exhibit 1; to remove the barriers to access at its facility; to make alterations, and the path of travel serving those altered areas of the facility, readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities; to pay compensatory damages to Mr. Guistwite; to establish a policy for the transportation of individuals with disabilities from the designated accessible parking areas to the raceway; and to establish an employee training program regarding non-discriminatory service of individuals with disabilities.

 

B. Agreement of the Parties

Accordingly, it is hereby agreed by the parties and ordered by the Court as follows:

1. This Court has jurisdiction of this action under 42 U.S.C. § 12188(b)(1)(B) and 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331 and 1345.

2. Venue is proper in this district.

3. Dover Downs raceway is an entertainment facility whose operations affect commerce. As such, it is a public accommodation within the meaning of section 302(a) and section 303(a) of the Act. 42 U.S.C. §§ 12182(a), 12183(a). In addition, because Dover Downs is a non-residential facility for use by a private entity, it is also a commercial facility within the meaning of section 303(a) of the Act. 42 U.S.C. § 12183(a).

4. Defendant Dover Downs is a private entity that owns and operates the Dover Downs raceway.

5. Dover Downs has undertaken renovations, additions, remodeling or other alterations to its facility several times since January 26, 1992, including, but not limited to, the following alterations:

a. Adding at least 20,000 additional seats to the North Grandstand;

b. Constructing an additional public use restroom facility;

c. Constructing a suite complex;

d. Renovating and remodeling a horse-racing dormitory into additional public use restrooms, storage, and four private invitation hospitality rooms;

e. Constructing the addition of seating to the South Grandstand;

f. Constructing a video-lottery facility adjacent to the East Grandstand.

6. Each of the instances of remodeling, renovation, and additions identified in paragraph 5 is an alteration to the facility that affects or could affect the usability of the facility, or part thereof, within the meaning of 42 U.S.C. § 12183.

 

7. Through subsequent investigation and review, certain areas of the altered portions of the Dover Downs raceway listed above were found not to be, to the maximum extent feasible, readily accessible to or usable by individuals with disabilities, as required by section 303(a)(2) of the Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12183(a)(2). Additionally, certain paths of travel to the altered areas, including certain restrooms, telephones and drinking fountains, were found not to be, to the maximum extent feasible, readily accessible to or usable by individuals with disabilities, as required by section 303(a)(2) of the Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12183(a)(2).

8. Dover Downs raceway also contains elements, features and spaces that constitute an existing facility, and with respect to these areas, Dover Downs has not removed architectural barriers where such removal is readily achievable.

9. The alterations and barrier removal efforts undertaken at Dover Downs fail in certain respects to comply with the Department of Justice's regulation implementing title III of the ADA, 28 C.F.R. Part 36, ("the regulation"), including the Standards for Accessible Design, 28 C.F.R. Part 36, Appendix A ("the Standards"). See 28 C.F.R. §§ 36.401, 36.406. A list of the features, elements, and spaces of the raceway that do not comply with the Standards is attached here as Exhibit 1.

10. The failures to make the altered portions of Dover Downs raceway and the paths of travel to those altered areas readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities and to remove barriers to access where such removal was readily achievable constitute unlawful discrimination within the meaning of 42 U.S.C. § 12188(b)(1)(B)(i) and 28 C.F.R. § 36.503(a) and raise an issue of general public importance within the meaning of 42 U.S.C. § 12188(b)(1)(B)(ii) and 28 C.F.R. § 36.503(b).

11. Not later than April 27, 1998, Dover Downs will develop a policy for the transportation of individuals with disabilities to and from the designated accessible parking areas to the raceway. Dover Downs will submit this policy to the Department of Justice for its review, comment and approval by April 27, 1998, and will implement the approved policy by May 30, 1998.

12. Not later than June 26, 1998, Dover Downs will develop an employee training program regarding non-discriminatory service of individuals with disabilities. Training of employees shall be provided at least annually in the normal course of training conducted by Dover Downs. New employees shall be trained by Dover Downs within 30 days after commencing employment or by the beginning of the event for which such employees are hired. Defendant Dover Downs will submit its training program to the Department for its review, comment and approval by June 26, 1998. Such program shall include the name of the person or entity proposed to conduct the training.

13. Not later than December 31, 2000, in order to fully comply with the Standards and remedy the violations identified in Exhibit 1, Dover Downs will complete the specific actions identified in Exhibit 2. The actions specified in Exhibit 2 are numbered to correspond to the violations identified in Exhibit 1.

14. Architectural drawings and specifications for the remedies specified in Exhibit 2 will be provided to the United States for its review and approval no later than 60 days prior to commencement of construction of each element.

15. Dover Downs will submit annual status reports to counsel for the United States regarding the completion of the action items designated on Exhibit 2. Such reports shall be submitted on or before December 31 of each year until such time as all of the action items listed on Exhibit 2 have been completed. If any steps have not been completed (or timely completed), the report shall so indicate and explain why such steps have not been completed.

16. The parties hereto agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation or implementation of this order before bringing the matter to the Court's attention.

17. The Court shall retain jurisdiction of this action to enforce the provisions of this order through December 31, 2001, after which time all of its provisions shall be terminated, unless the Court determines it is necessary to extend any of its requirements, in which case those requirements shall be extended.

18. Defendant Dover Downs shall comply with the ADA Standards in any future involvement by it in the design and construction or alteration of the Dover Downs facility that is the subject of this Order.

19. This agreement relates solely to the facts and events alleged in the United States' complaint and shall govern the compliance of defendant Dover Downs with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design at the Dover Downs raceway. This agreement does not address, and shall not be construed to address, any other issues of ADA compliance at Dover Downs, or at any other commercial facility or place of public accommodation designed and constructed by defendant Dover Downs or any other violations of federal law.

20. Within thirty days of the date of this order, Dover Downs shall pay to Edward Guistwite, Sr. compensatory damages in the sum of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00) by certified check, with a copy provided to the United States.

21. This instrument reflects the entire agreement between the parties hereto.
