ADA – No Violation for Bleachers Built Pre-ADA (CC)

On July 25, 2014, the United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, issued a unanimous decision in Daubert v. Lindsay Unified School District which held that the school district was not required to structurally alter its high school football field bleachers where the seating was built prior to the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and other accessible seating was available to individuals who used wheelchairs.
