That's no typo; it's now official--the President signed today the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. As a bonus, my colleague, Alex Long (University of Tennessee), has just posted on SSRN his essay forthcoming in the Northwestern University Law Review Colloquy, Introducing the New and Improved Americans with Disabilities Act: Assessing the ADA Amendments Act. It's a great summary of the changes in the Act and their impact. Rest assured that this will be my go-to source when I'm scrambling to include the new Act when I teach the ADA in a few weeks.
