    From DOJ statement:

    In 2009, on the tenth anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Olmstead, President Obama launched “The Year of Community Living” and directed federal agencies to vigorously enforce the civil rights of Americans with disabilities.  Since then, the Department of Justice has made enforcement of Olmstead a top priority.  As we commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Olmstead decision, the Department of Justice reaffirms its commitment to vindicate the right of individuals with disabilities to live integrated lives under the ADA and Olmstead.
    Full DOJ statement & guide here:

    Complete info including lawsuits, briefs et al  are here:

    Lastly:
    Synopsis of Olmstead v. L.C. and E.W. history:

    Staggering amount (but probably still not enough) of services to be put into place by set dates in my state of GA where it all began.  Too lengthy to put here; however I mention this because if not for voices & "trees" (the AJC & advocates) Olmstead would not be.    

    Olmstead & the DOJ may be coming to your state (or already there)

    Please believe.  (And holler louder...)
