The Future of Olmstead: 2020 and Beyond
2 PM EST
Since Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s 1999 majority decision in Olmstead v. L.C., Olmstead litigation has been one of the primary means through which the government and advocates have pursued deinstitutionalization and desegregation of persons with disabilities throughout society. This webinar explores the future of Olmstead, with a focus on the role of the Supreme Court, Executive Branch, and Congress. The webinar discusses some of the legal, political, and practical obstacles to full-throated enforcement and the prospects of the Disability Integration Act.
