Kozlowski, James C.
Parks & Recreation, v35 n11 p34,36,38-43 Nov 2000
Describes the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities, highlighting a lawsuit involving a boy with AIDS who was barred from a traditional combat-oriented martial arts school. Courts ruled that his exclusion did not violate the ADA because he posed significant health and safety risks to others that could not be eliminated via reasonable modification. (SM)
