Gasp Of Texas


GASP of Texas is attempting to have the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) amended to eliminate an exception created by the United States Department of Justice under the leadership of Eric Holder which exempts citizens with breathing disabilities from the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act.


Defendant's Motion To Dismiss
Northern District of Texas District Court Decision
United States District Court Appeal For The Fifth Circuit
Letter to Senator Ted Cruz regarding the introduction of legislation to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act to resolve a conflict of interpretation of 42 U.S.C. 12201(b) by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit

The Bottom Line

If you live in the states of New York, Connecticut or Vermont and have a breathing disability, you qualify for the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

If you live in the states of Texas, Louisiana or Mississippi and have a breathing disability, you are exempt from the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

If you live in any other state, your state officials are able to choose which decision applies in your state. Such decisions are often based on the amount of payoffs that the tobacco industry has made to state officials.
