DOJ SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT WITH THE STATE OF IDAHO
This matter arose out of a complaint concerning the accessibility of the Idaho State Capitol’s facilities, services, programs, and activities under Title II of the ADA. The Capitol functions as the seat of Idaho’s state government. The Idaho State Capitol was re-dedicated on January 9, 2010 after three years of restoration and renovation.
The State of Idaho shall implement and enforce a written policy with regard to ADA compliance at the Capitol.
The State shall take measures (i.e., training) to ensure that employees that work at the Capitol comply with obligations in this Agreement and the State of Idaho will retain an Independent Licensed Architect (ILA”)knowledgeable about the architectural accessibility requirements of the ADA.
If the DOJ believes that this Agreement or any requirement thereof has been violated the State of Idaho shall have 30 days from its receipt of the notice to cure and/or respond in writing to the United States regarding the alleged violation(s). If the DOJ believes that the State of Idaho has violated the Agreement, the United States may institute a civil action for relief in federal district court, and may seek civil remedies.
