State Bar Shenanigans
When approached by a State Bar for the “ Unauthorized Practice of Law”, I’m seeing that State Bars are incompetent to give ADA access to their services.
I’ve asked outright if they will give me ADA reasonable accommodations under Title II of the ADA, and asserted that, by their rules, they are subject to the Supreme Court of their respective states.
Laughably, their response is “What accommodations do you need?”
This side-steps whether they are offering ADA accommodations, and like the cop on the side of the road that asks “Do you know why I pulled you over?”, this is nothing more than a fishing expedition.
Nevada’s Kait Flocchini said “Please respond with a request for a reasonable modification/accommodation and how such modification/accommodation relates to a disability”.
To answer this in absence of their admission that they are subject to the ADA eliminates my rights to privacy and independence, and also the non-discrimination rights afforded by the ADA, and eliminates the prohibitions on coercion, intimidation, threats, and interference for one who is exercising and enjoying rights under the ADA.
My pleas for ADA equal access have been met by awkward side-stepping and non-responsive replies.
It’s embarrassing for the legal industry that they, as the self-proclaimed purveyors of wordcraft, cannot directly answer a simple question or two of how they are or are not subject to the ADA.
And, if the State Bar is a private institution, and outside of the ADA, then why would we expect lawyers to act in any way to reasonably accommodate disabled individuals?
There is a higher law. ;)
