Cravath Represents New York City Disability Rights Groups in Victory for Accessibility

On February 4, 2020, in a suit brought by Cravath and Disability Rights Advocates (“DRA”) on behalf of Disabled in Action of Metropolitan New York, the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled and individual plaintiffs, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled that the New York Police Department violated federal law under the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to make police stations accessible to individuals with mobility disabilities. The victory could result in expanded access and accommodations at police stations throughout the city.

The Cravath team that worked alongside DRA included partner Darin P. McAtee and associates Sarah V. Warburg‑Johnson, Sophia M. Suarez, Aishlinn R. Bottini and Molly G. Rothschild. Former associate Jack McNeily also worked on the matter.

The case is Disabled in Action v. New York City, S.D.N.Y.
