Law & Psychiatry: The Americans With Disabilities Act and community-based treatment law
Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Community-based care
The U.S. Supreme Court, in its 1998 term, decided two cases related to the application of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). In one, the court ruled that the ADA applies to inmates of state prisons (1). In the other, the court held that asymptomatic HIV disease was a covered disability within the statute (2). Because these cases were decided by the Supreme Court, they received considerable attention.
