Course Description

Following up on Defending ADA Lawsuits, this program delves further into the particulars of ADA litigation, including an expanded discussion of ADA history, and of litigation techniques and strategies. 


Experienced ADA litigator Nolan Klein, Esq. explores recent case-law approving the concept of “tester” plaintiffs, and strategies for preventing clients from being sued more than once, including the use of consent decrees, and preemptively addressing “red flag” violations. His program also touches upon alternatives to settling an ADA matter.  


Learning Objectives:

I.     Understand the ADA and ADA general litigation strategies and techniques 

II.    Discuss recent case-law on “tester” or “drive-by” ADA plaintiffs and the current state of the law on this issue 

III.   Review settlement strategies and techniques – and discuss what to do when an ADA case just cannot be settled

IV.   Identify techniques used to avoid being sued a second time, including procedural mechanisms that may preclude future ADA lawsuits
