Department of Justice is starting to enforce ADA codes… again

The Department of Justice after a long haitus has begun to inspect for ADA code violations again.

Federal prosecutors are reviewing about a dozen downtown Minneapolis restaurants for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Minnesota U.S. Attorney B. Todd Jones’ office said Wednesday.

Department of Justice attorneys may review other Minnesota restaurants as part of the review, which is starting with high-traffic, downtown restaurants on or adjacent to Nicollet Mall.

During the last Bush administration, much of the enforcement activity from the DOJ was halted. With the change in administration under Obama, the DOJ begun to purse offenders of the ADA, although they seemed to limit their activity to larger companies. Apparently they have begun to do spot checks of high traffic areas again.
