Subject: [ADA-Laws] District Court upholds Title II damages in post-Garrett
     Decision
 
Good News: A District Court upholds Title II damages in a post-Garrett
Decision. The case is
 
MICHAEL BOWERS,
 
                 Plaintiff,
 
         v.
 
NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION, ACT, INC., NCAA
INITIAL-ELIGIBILITY CLEARINGHOUSE, TEMPLE UNIVERSITY OF THE COMMONWEALTH
SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE.
 
In it, the judge finds that Title II of the ADA validly abrogated
the States' sovereign immunity.  As far as we are
aware, it is the only published opinion upholding
damages under Title II post-Garrett.  It'll probably
be on Westlaw in a few days, as well. Let me know if you have trouble
reading the attachment.
