Spector v. Norwegian Case Argued Today

The Supreme Court will hear arguments today in the Spector v. Norwegian Cruise Line Case.  The question presented to the Court concerns whether Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act applies to cruise ships, and foreign-flagged cruise ships in particular. Title III forbids discrimination in public accommodations.  A brief overview of the case is available from SCOTUSblog, which also has a link to the briefs.   For a more in-depth review of the case and its issues, please see the National Council of Disability website.
