Federal Judge Determines That Airlines Must Obey Americans With Disabilities Act
On April 14, 2008, attorney Richard Bernstein filed a disability discrimination lawsuit against Northwest Airlines and the Wayne County Airport Authority, based on their violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Air Carrier Act and the Rehabilitation Act.
In response, the defendants denied that they engaged in discriminatory practices. Moreover, Northwest Airlines insisted that it was not subject to the Americans With Disabilities Act.
On September 2, 2008, U.S. District Court Judge George Steeh denied Northwest Airlines' request to dismiss the case and ordered the parties to prepare for trial.
The Judge's decision has national importance, because this is the first Court ruling that the ADA applies to commercial airlines. The plaintiffs in this case and their attorney, Richard Bernstein, are making history!
