A mobility impaired person uses a motel. It turns out that motel does not meet the ADA guidelines for architectural accessibility. As a result, a person suffers personal injuries as a result of that inaccessible feature. Or, a person goes to a theater and despite asking for help from theater personnel does not receive any.

Previously, I have written two different blog entries dealing with the Air Carrier Access Act. In the first, I talked about whether a private cause of action existed. In the second, I talked about whether the Air Carrier Access Act regulations being so pervasive preempted state laws. This entry concerns a slightly different issue.
