Ochoa, et al. v. City of Long Beach, et al.

On June 4, 2014, GBDH, along with co-counsel Disability Rights Advocates and Disability Rights Legal Center, filed Ochoa, et al. v. the City of Long Beach, et al., Case No. 14-cv-04307 (C.D. Cal.), on behalf of persons with mobility disabilities who live in or visit the City of Long Beach.  The case alleges that the City violated the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and California Government Code § 11135 by failing to install accessible curb ramps at intersections and failing to maintain sidewalks in a condition that is useable by persons with mobility disabilities.  On September 17, 2015, United States District Court Judge Dale S. Fischer granted class certification and appointed GBDH, Disability Rights Advocates, and Disability Rights Legal Center class counsel.
