Tenth Circuit Review of Exhaustion of Remedies in Title III ADA Cases (Amicus Support)

Citation

Lillard v. Sunflower Farmers Market, Inc., 12-cv-01497-JLK

Issues

In Title III ADA cases, the question is whether the Plaintiff must provide notice of the claimed violation to a state civil rights organization before filing a lawsuit. The Tenth Circuit ruled that the filing of such a notice is mandatory before a lawsuit may be filed. Plaintiffs challenge that postion claiming that a plain reading of the statute makes clear a plaintiff may file a lawsuit without exhausting state administrative remedies. 

Status

Before the appeal concluded, the individual parties reached a settlement agreement.  No appellate briefs were filed.
