New Settlement Agreement on ADA.gov: Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium

NEXT TIME YOU GO TAILGATING WITH YOUR RV, KNOW THAT THE LIBERTY BOWL WILL ACCOMMODATE ALL PERSONS

The Justice Department announced today that it has entered into an agreement with the City of Memphis, Tennessee, to bring the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the settlement agreement, Memphis will install 282 wheelchair spaces and an equal number of companion seats around the stadium, and will ensure ADA compliance for concession stands, gates, elevators, suites and press boxes, ramps, and toilet rooms throughout the Liberty Bowl within the next year. The agreement requires installation of additional wheelchair spaces in future renovated seating areas, such as the suites and press boxes, and will remain in effect for three years.

    I have a suit currently filed agniast due to my service animal not being allowed in my subsidized apartment. I have a non-profit agency doing most of the work. They have informed me that it is very difficult to get interviews etc. from tenants regarding the case and have asked me to do further investigation myself. I am not capable of that kind of investigative work. Do you have a suggestion?Thanks Misty

      go to ada.gov and do a search on service animals and you will find what your rights are.
