Other Relevant Laws

keep in mind that while it explicitly states federal government, it
can also apply to regional/local government (and probably will), and
it's also been interpreted to mean any NFP or government-
funded/subsidied orgs as well...

caselaw?  not yet...  precedent?  ADA is full of it in the brick-n-
mortar world, and lawyers counsel their clients to settle since they
feel they will lose cases otherwise...

IOW, i'm not gonna let any of my clients be that first case...
