Frank Morris Discusses Impact of ADA Expansion

Miami Daily Business Review

Frank C. Morris, Jr., a Member of the Firm in the Litigation practice and head of the Labor and Employment practice at the Washington, D.C. office, was quoted in a July 14, 2008, Miami Daily Business Review article about Congress aiming to expand the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

The article, "Congress Considers Bill to Give ADA Legs Again," focuses on the passage by Congress in June of the ADA Amendments Act of 2008.

The article quotes Morris, who is the co-chair of EBG's Disability Law Group, as saying the bill goes too far and "will definitely increase litigation." He also noted that while the bill is not retroactive there is a question of what would happen to existing ADA cases.
