Access Center for Independent Living v. Dayton Mall

DRO, ABLE file federal lawsuit seeking changes to Dayton Mall bus stop policy

In December 2015, Disability Rights Ohio (DRO) and Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE) filed a federal lawsuit against the Dayton Mall and several of its anchor stores–Macy’s, Sears, and Elder Beerman–seeking a policy change that would enable people with disabilities who ride public transportation to have effective and equal access to the Dayton Mall.

The complaint alleges that the present policy of the mall, which requires that the RTA keep the bus stop more than 600 feet from the mall entrance and which significantly limits the buses that can use the stop, severely impacts people with disabilities and discriminates against them, in violation of Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
