Justice Department Files Statement of Interest regarding Title II Service Animal Regulation

The Department of Justice filed a Statement of Interest today in Alboniga v. School Board of Broward County, Florida, No. 14-60085 (S. D. Fla.), to clarify that the Department's title II regulation generally requires public entities, such as schools, to permit individuals with disabilities to use their service animals, subject to specific exceptions. This regulatory framework furthers Congress's intent to honor individuals' choices to be accompanied by their service animals whereever feasible and to respect such individuals' autonomy and self-determination.

To find out more about this Statement of Interest or the ADA, call the Justice Department's ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 or 800-514-0383 (TDD), or access its ADA website at www.ada.gov.
