PHOENIX - In a new decision, a judge ruled that a controversial group filing huge batches of disability-access lawsuits does not have standing to bring cases in federal court and scolded the group’s attorneys.
Judge Murray Snow issued the order Thursday.
It’s a decision that could have broader implications as Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities (AID) fights unprecedented legal battles in state and federal court.
AID has filed the majority of its 1700 cases without a person listed as the plaintiff. Instead, the group lists itself as the plaintiff and argued that it’s suing on behalf of its “members.”
