Reynoldson v. City of Seattle

This class action, filed in October 2015, alleges that the City of Seattle, Washington, has discriminated and continues to discriminate against individuals with mobility disabilities by failing to install and maintain curb ramps that are necessary to make its pedestrian right of way readily accessible to people with mobility disabilities, and to comply with its obligation to install and/or remediate curb ramps when it engages in alterations or new construction of streets, bus stops, and sidewalks.

The case alleges that these failures violate the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Washington state law. In July, 2017, we reached a landmark settlement of a class action suit requiring the City of Seattle to install or remediate over 20,000 curb ramps throughout Seattle over the next 18 years. The Court granted final approval of the settlement on November 1, 2017.

CREEC is co-counseling with Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho and Disability Rights Washington. The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.
