What remedies are available to individuals with disabilities who believe their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act have been violated?

The State Courts System in the Tenth Circuit has established grievance procedures that allow for the resolution of complaints without resorting to federal complaint procedures. All persons have a right to pursue complaints of discrimination through the State Courts System's internal complaint procedure. For further information, you should contact Nick Sudzina at the Office of the Court Administrator at (863) 534-4686 (voice), (863) 534-7777 (TDD) or (800) 955-8770 (Florida Relay Service) The ADA recommends resolving disputes on a local level if possible. Individuals who unsuccessfully pursue local remedies are not prevented from later seeking relief through the United States Department of Justice or the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
