Soapbox lawsuit requires NYC to install and upgrade curb ramps on all street corners

Notice Of Settlement In A Class Action Lawsuit
United Spinal Association
(f/k/a Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association) and New York City have
agreed to expand a ground-breaking 2002 settlement in a class action
lawsuit that requires New York City to install and upgrade wheelchair curb
ramps at all of its street corners.

This is notice to our members who may have a disability, as defined by the
Americans with Disabilities Act, who use or seek to use curb ramps in New
York City. You may be a member of a Plaintiff Class in the class action
lawsuit entitled Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association v. City of New

The court has scheduled a hearing for May 24, 2016 at 2:00 PM to assess
the fairness, reasonableness, and adequacy of the 2016 settlement. Members
of the Plaintiff class are entitled to attend the Fairness Hearing.
