New ADA limits in CA

California has a new law in place designed to reign in ADA lawsuits in the state. Two out of every five ADA lawsuits are filed in California. Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill into law yesterday. It is supposed to protect small businesses from predatory ADA lawsuits. The law directly bans letters demanding that a business pay a fee or face a lawsuit over alleged violations. The law also cuts the amount of damages business owners must pay when they correct a violation following a complaint.
