The Long Road Home: Perspectives On Olmstead Ten Years Later

October 23, 2009

Sutherland will host a symposium, "The Long Road Home:  Perspectives On Olmstead Ten Years Later," on October 23, 2009.  The symposium, featuring presentations by nationally prominent experts in the field of disability rights and policy, will explore the impact of the 1999 Olmstead decision on the disabled community and the future of similar litigation.

Olmstead v. L.C., 527 U.S. 581 (1999), is a landmark decision holding that unjustified isolation of mentally disabled individuals in institutions is a form of disability discrimination prohibited by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).  Olmstead is considered by some to be the disability law parallel to Brown v. Board of Education.  Attorneys and the surviving plaintiff from the Olmstead litigation, which originated in metropolitan Atlanta, will participate in the symposium.  United States District Court Judge Marvin Shoob, who ruled on the original summary judgment motion in Olmstead, will speak at the event.
