It is time for the top 10 of 2016. For the most part, the greatest hits stayed the same during the course of the whole year. I believe I updated the greatest hits at the end of the first quarter of this year and then did not do so after that. There were only two or three blog entries from the end of the first quarter that fell from the list with respect to year-end views. On the list that was put up after the first quarter of the year, there was one blog entry that is not a greatest hit in terms of use, but I think it is terribly important, and I want to add another in that category. So, in my greatest hits box, you will find two blog entries that I believe are incredibly important, not that all of my blog entries aren’t important:-), and deserve to have special mention even if they are not a greatest hit. In addition, you will find the top 10 for 2016. So, this should be a total of 12 blog entries in my greatest hits box and they are:

I get too many phone calls from students in higher education, particularly graduate schools, where the college or professional school seems to not have a clue about their ADA compliance obligations. So, I always list this blog entry, which discusses an ADA compliance checklist for places of higher education.

A critical principle with the ADA is that the ADA is a duty that cannot be delegated. Failure to be aware of that can cost a client a lot of money as seen here.

 

Turning to the Top 10 of 2016 and they are in reverse order:

10.  In order to file suit under title I of the ADA, one has to exhaust administrative remedies. This blog entry discusses what that means. (584 views). What about using the Americans With Disabilities Act Architectural Guidelines/Standards as a basis for a negligence per se claim? This blog entry discusses that possibility. (562 views).

9. What about using the Americans With Disabilities Act Architectural Guidelines/Standards as a basis for a negligence per se claim? This blog entry discusses that possibility. (562 views).

8.  Whether public colleges and public university immune from suit on the grounds of sovereign immunity is discussed here. (782 views).

7. Suing a state court system for violations of the ADA is extremely difficult, but it can be done as discussed here. (852 views).

6.  Is causation under the ADA “but for,” or something else? This blog entry discusses that. (867 views).

5.  Just what is the difference between a service dog and a therapy dog? See this blog entry. I should note that the issue of service dogs is something you will find numerous blog entries on. (1087 views).

4.  Just what is the applicable statute of limitations for ADA claims is discussed in this blog entry. (1136 views).

3.  How does the ADA deal with temporary disabilities is discussed in this blog entry. (1229 views).

2.  What do you have to show in order to get compensatory damages under title II of the ADA is discussed in this blog entry. (1494 views).

 

AND THE WINNER IS…

It is not even close. This particular blog entry, which discusses whether you can get compensatory and punitive damages in ADA retaliation cases, has more than double the views of the second-place finisher coming in at 3061 views.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all!

 

See you next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
