A person who believes he or she is being discriminated against by a State or local government should first try to educate officials involved about the ADA’s requirements. Individuals may also file a complaint with the Department of Justice. Complaints must be filed within 180 days of when the discrimination occurred. Complaints should be sent to the following address: U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division Disability Rights Section Post Office Box 66738 Washington, D.C. 20035-6738 Individuals are also entitled to bring private ADA lawsuits against State and local governments and seek injunctive relief, compensatory damages, and reasonable attorney’s fees.
