Case Name: American Ass’n of People with Disabilities v. Harris
Citation: 647 F.3d 1093
Federal Circuit Court: 11th Circuit Court
Case Summary: American Association of People with Disabilities v. Harris held that voting machines are not facilities because the structure of DOJ regulations, the DOJ's non-binding guidance, and cases defining facility all suggested that only permanent, physical structure and fixed items attached to those structures were facilities that could be altered, so it was error to grant relief on that basis.
