The Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America and the University of Michigan will head to trial over whether U-M's new Big House renovation is wheelchair accessible.
The veterans filed suit against U-M earlier this year, claiming the $226 million renovation of Michigan Stadium will not meet federal Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines. There is not enough wheelchair seating and there is not enough location options, they claim.
U-M has maintained the renovation will meet federal code.
The two parties had tried to work toward a settlement, but no agreement could be reached after a court status conference on Wednesday.
"It's been determined that this is a matter that can't be settled and let's go to trial," said Richard Bernstein, attorney for the veterans.
A trial will likely take place in the fall, he said.
