3J ADA and Criminal Justice

3J ADA and Criminal Justice

Unfortunately, there are many people with disabilities in our criminal justice system. Back in 1998, the Supreme Court made clear in a case called Yeskey that the ADA applies to state prisons. This webinar will review how the ADA has been applied to law enforcement and the criminal justice system since the Yeskey decision, including a discussion of recent litigation involving the segregation of people with mental illness in prisons.
