Arena ADA

New York, NY: (Nov-01-07) A lawsuit was brought against the owners and operators of Madison Square Garden, the sports and entertainment arena, alleging that they violated the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The lawsuit stated that since the passage of the ADA 17 years ago, Madison Square Garden has made a number of alterations to its facilities, but failed to comply with federal law in doing so.

As part of a settlement reached, Madison Square Garden has agreed to take steps to make its arena accessible to individuals with disabilities in compliance with the ADA. The Garden has also agreed to pay $55,000 to the United States, provide the necessary seating arrangements for fans with disabilities and expend at least $10,000 per year for the next three years on advertisements promoting the availability of accessible seating.
