Public Accommodations Materials for Lawyers
The U.S. Department of Justice is responsible for issuing regulations enforcing Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodations such as stores, restaurants, day care centers, and other places of public accommodations.
