Olmstead Cases

In its opinion in Olmstead v. L.C., 527 U.S. 581 (1999), the U.S. Supreme Court held that persons unnecessarily confined to institutions for care relating to mental or intellectual disabilities have the right to state-funded community-based treatment options. Unjustified segregation in institutions constitutes illegal discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act, said the Court, not only because it perpetuates unwarranted assumptions that people with disabilities are incapable or unworthy of participating in community life, but because confinement in an institution severely curtails everyday life activities, such as family relations, social contacts, work, educational advancement and cultural enrichment. This decision has led to an entire category of litigation (usually referred to as "Olmstead litigation"); the Clearinghouse has collected dozens of these cases here.
The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
