THE WASHINGTON, D.C. DOJ
THE CONNECTICUT DOJ
In response, on July 9, 2013, Attorney Deirdre M. Daly and her assistant Ndidi N. Moses send me a letter which stated, "I have reviewed your complaint dated June 24, 2013 [incorrect date! I had sent in two letters--one dated December 24, 2012 and the other dated June 10, 2013] alleging that the state of Connecticut Judicial Branch has violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. You complaint is under review by this office, and we will contact you if we have any questions."
Months went by and she never responded to my complaint indicating whether she thought it was legitimate or not, and she never responded to my request for an Amicus Brief either with a yes or no. I still have not heard what the outcome of the so-called "review" of my case was.
As a followup, on September 1, 2015, the CT Law Tribune reported that the CT DOJ is planning on investigating CT hotels for non-compliance with the ADA. See the link below:
In the last decade, several Connecticut residents, many representing their children's interests as well, have contacted the CT Department of Justice and requested assistance in obtaining their federal ADA rights. Well over a year and a half ago, the CT DOJ stated it would proceed with a compliance review of the CT Judicial Branch. When I made an inquiry about when that review would be completed, as I stated, I was reprimanded because Attorney John Hughes stated that his offices were overwhelmed with work and could we possibly ask them to do more. Yet now we get a news report indicating that after delaying any kind of response to the complaints of family court victims and refusing to address their individual concerns the CT DOJ is now volunteering to take on a new area of concern, i.e. hotels. This is a slap in the face of all family court victims with disabilities who have been waiting for years for redress.
