[JURIST] The US Supreme Court said Monday that it will decide whether states and counties can be sued under the Americans with Disabilities Act [official website] for not making accommodations for disabled inmates in prisons. The Bush administration filed an appeal in the case on behalf of an inmate seeking wheelchair accessibility in his prison. The case highlights issues of federal power and state liability, with states facing huge costs if retrofitting prisons to accommodate disabled inmates is required. AP has more. No other cases were granted certiorari; the Court's full Order List from Monday is here [PDF].
