State of Michigan’s buildings are inaccessible
Jill Babcock v.
State of Michigan and Michigan Strategic Fund
Suit filed on behalf of Plaintiff Jill Babcock, who suffers from a form of multiple sclerosis. Plaintiff worked for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, which moved to the Cadillac Building in October and houses the state Commission on Disability Concerns, Court of Appeals, and the Workers’ Compensation Agency and other related agencies and offices. In her complaint, Plaintiff alleged that the building stood in violation of the ADA Accessibility Guidelines, promulgated under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as the building’s restrooms, entryways, and elevators were inaccessible to the physically disabled. Currently, all parties are in the process of facilitation to reach settlement.
