||Americans with Disabilities Act (3:30) -- ADA Compliance (3:11) -- Addressing Non-Compliance Issues (4:00)
||During the 1980s, a new civil rights movement got underway-for people with disabilities. In this program, Larry Paradis, executive director of Disability Rights Advocates, speaks with NewsHour correspondent Spencer Michels about the importance of litigation in pressuring companies and communities to comply with the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. But are such legal actions actually undermining support for the ADA? Richard Baier, president of the Building Owners and Managers Association International; Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL); and others present their points of view.
