All,

are there not other laws that apply here as well, not just the ADA?  I
believe there are several applicable laws when it comes to universities.
And I also believe they can lose all their federal grants across the board
if they violate these laws.

Sincerely,

Mike Burks

SL::  "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."

WL: In much the same way as all civil rights legislation "violates" that
amendment by prohibiting discriminatory behavior in violation of
"states' rights" - the old "we know what's best for our Nigrahs"
priniciple.
