In September 2016, Thomas E. Kennedy, III was nominated to join the subcommittee charged with drafting updates to the Seventh Circuit Pattern Jury Instructions in ADA/ADAAA cases.

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Americans With Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) gives protections to individuals with disabilities in a variety of environments, such as school and the workplace.

There are thirteen members of the subcommittee, including plaintiffs’ and defense attorneys, as well as several U.S. District Court judges.  It is anticipated that a new set of ADA/ADAA jury instructions will be available in early 2018.
