Hi,

I've heard from a professor at SFSU that there has been little media
coverage on this.  As you can imagine, SFSU is not looking for this
issue to become very public since it could become a PR mess, e.g. the
unviersity depriving disabled students.

Basically, SFSU is attempting to defend itself against an ADA lawsuit by
claiming that the ADA violates the 11th Amendment and is therefore at least
partly unconstitutional.
