Is Regents of the University of California considered a "Business Establishment" under the Unruh Civil Rights Act?


In our most recent litigation one of the mostly contested and litigated issues was whether the Regents of the University of California ("Regents") is considered a "business establishment" under California's Unruh Civil Rights Act ("Act")? 

Since there is no direct case law on the issue, Regents tends to frequently make the argument that it is not and should not be considered a "business establishment" under the Unruh Civil Rights Act.  Although the case that we have been litigating is not final, and no direct case law has been established yet that specifically addresses the issue, a San Diego Superior Court Judge denied the Regents' multiple attempts at arguing that it should not be held liable because it is not a "business establishment."

ADA Rights For The Mentally Disabled


It has been quite some time since I have been wanting to write about this topic. As a disability advocate and one who suffers from a disability, I have found it to be my calling to assist people who are in a similar situation. 

As a student in college and later law school I did not receive any type of accommodation, despite having been diagnosed with a mental disability in my junior year of college. Simply put, I was ignorant and did not know anything about ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) or its counterpart the 504 Rehabilitation Act. 

Both of these laws are federal laws that were passed by congress to level the playing field for people with disabilities in their use and enjoyments of services that a business offers. In its most broad...

New California Law Allows Post-Conviction Relief For Non-Citizens


Penal code 1473.7
which went into effect on January 1, 2017 will afford non-citizens a mechanism
to fight conviction obtained against their rights.


The code allows
non-citizens to file motions alleging at least three distinct causes of action
that may be raised independently or together on the basis that: 1) defense
counsel violated the duty to investigate and accurately advise the defendant
about the specific immigration consequences of a plea; 2) defense counsel
failed to defend against immigration consequences of a plea by attempting to
plea bargain for an immigration-safe alternative disposition; and 3) the
defendant failed to meaningfully understand the immigration consequences of a

Ninth Circuit In Favor Of NCAA's Policy Of Excluding Anyone With A Felony Conviction From Coaching At NCAA-Certified Youth Athletic Tournaments


Plaintiff filed suit alleging that the NCAA's policy of excluding anyone
with a felony conviction from coaching at NCAA-certified youth athletic
tournaments violates Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C.
2000a(a). Section 2000a(a) prohibits racial discrimination in places of public
accommodation. The Ninth Circuit affirmed summary judgment for the NCAA and
held that even if disparate-impact claims were cognizable under Title II,
plaintiff has not shown that an equally effective, less discriminatory
alternative to the NCAA's felon-exclusion policy exists, as he must do under
the three-step analysis for disparate-impact claims set forth in Wards Cove
Packing Co. v. Atonio, 490 U.S. 642 (1989). The panel noted that it need not
decide whether to endorse or ...
