R.K., by next friends, J.K. and R.K. v. Board of Education of Scott County, Kentucky

Statement of Interest of the United States of America | PDF This Statement of Interest was filed to clarify the proper framework for evaluating the title II ADA claim at issue in this case, where the plaintiffs have alleged an ADA violation based on the forcible transfer of a child with diabetes to an out-of-zone school because his zoned school lacked a full-time nurse.  The Statement of Interest also clarifies that the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause requires that state law give way where it is in conflict with a federal law such as the ADA and opposes the renewed argument that the plaintiff’s ADA claim is foreclosed for failure to exhaust administrative remedies under IDEA, a federal statute with no nexus to the case.

Statement of Interest of the United States | PDF – supporting plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment against Hollister stores nationwide that have entrances on raised porches.  The statement of interest argues that the raised porches violate title III because they violate the provisions of both the 1991 Standards and the 2010 Standards regarding public entrances and accessible routes.  It explains that the Department's guidance to the 2010 Standards is entitled to deference and that the raised porches function as both entrance and part of the store and therefore must be accessible and must be located on an accessible route. (6/26/12)
