What is Olmstead?

Sorry Everyone for not blogging everyday.

I got several emails asking what olmstead was and requesting to put it on our blog. So here's the answer:

Olmstead is In Olmstead v. L.C.(1999) ("the Olmstead decision"), the Supreme Court construed Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to require states to place qualified individuals with mental disabilities in community settings, rather than in institutions, whenever treatment professionals determine that such placement is appropriate, the affected persons do not oppose such placement, and the state can reasonable accommodate the placement, taking into account the resources available to the state and the needs of others with disabilities. The Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the ADA require public entities to administer their services, programs, and activities in the most integrated setting appropriate to the needs of qualified individuals with disabilities.
