The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Jersey’s University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD), invites you to attend a panel discussion about the origin and continued impact of the Supreme Court’s Olmstead Decision. We are pleased to partner with Rutgers School of Law to host this program, which has been developed by our sister UCEDD at the University of Georgia.

 

We are delighted to have this opportunity in New Jersey as July marks the 25thanniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In the Olmstead vs. LC Supreme Court case of 1999, the issue of institutions was addressed under Title II of the ADA. The Supreme Court findings recognized unnecessary institutionalization as a form of discrimination. The Olmstead decision has had a dramatic effect on services for people with disabilities across the country and in New Jersey. This session, which will take place at Rutgers School of Law – Newark, offers an opportunity to hear from disability civil rights experts and to develop a broader understanding of this landmark Supreme Court decision.
