School Board of Broward County, Florida
Department of Justice Statement of Interest (posted January 26, 2015)

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 Departments 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 Congresss intent to honor an individuals choice to be accompanied by his or her service animal wherever 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 Departments ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 or 800-514-0383 (TDD), or access its ADA website at www.ada.gov.
