The Garrett Case and Public School Accessibility.
This publication presents an assessment of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama v. Garrett (2001), which decided that Congress had no power to authorize suits for damages by individuals with disabilities against state employers under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The publication reveals the decisions leading to Garrett, examines the court's reasoning behind the decision, offers the dissenting view, and explores the ruling's implications for public education. A glossary of legal terms is also provided. (GR)
