It is time for the top 10 plus three of 2017. For the most part, the greatest hits, but not of all of their order of popularity stayed the same from 2016 to 2017, except for one entry (negligence per se dropped out of the top 10 and was replaced by the history of ADA and ADA related cases at the United States Supreme Court). 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. Also, you will find an entry that is sure to be a greatest hits in 2018 since it has to be read with another blog entry that is already a greatest hit. In addition, you will find the top 10 for 2017. So, this should be a total of 13 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 as seen here. But, be sure to read this blog entry as well as it’s complicated.

One of the greatest hits is just what is the statute of limitations for ADA claims. However, an even more important question perhaps, is when does that statute of limitations begin to run, which we discussed just last week in this blog entry.

Turning to the Top 10 of 2017 and they are in reverse order:

10.  Is causation under the ADA “but for,” or something else? This blog entry discusses that question. (907 views and sixth place last year).

9.  Whether public colleges and public university are immune from suit on the grounds of sovereign immunity is discussed here. (1125 views and eighth place last year).

8.  How does the ADA deal with temporary disabilities is discussed in this blog entry. (1246 views and third place last year).

7.  In order to file suit under title I of the ADA, one has to exhaust administrative remedies. This blog entry discusses what that means. (1351 views and 10th place last year).

6.  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. (1430 views and fifth place last year).

5. Suing a state court system for violations of the ADA is extremely difficult, but it can be done as discussed here. (1496 views and seventh place last year).

4. July 2016 blog entry discussing ADA and Related Cases at the Supreme Court and What is Next. (2108 views and new this year).

3.  What do you have to show in order to get compensatory damages under title II of the ADA is discussed in this blog entry. (2144 views and second place last year).

2.  Just what is the applicable statute of limitations for ADA claims is discussed in this blog entry. (2774 views and fourth place last year).



It is not even close for the second year in a row. This particular blog entry, which discusses whether you can get compensatory and punitive damages in ADA retaliation cases, has more than 1.5 times the views of the second-place finisher coming in at 4,406 views.

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


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