The following books, journal articles and other publications are a selected list of my works.
- Understanding the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Fourth Edition (American Bar Association, 2013).
The Americans with Disabilities Act remains an extremely broad and comprehensive law. This book highlights various aspects of the ADA, so that by the end the reader will have an excellent overview as well as a framework for dealing with the ADA in a preventive manner. Much has changed since the last edition, most notably, the detail included in the remedies chapter.
In addition to some general thoughts, there is now a discussion about standing, when a complaint is sufficient, statute of limitations, and mixed-motive jury instructions, along with expanded discussions of disparate treatment cases, class actions, jury selection, and Batson challenges.
Expanded and new topics include:
- ADA as it relates to sports, including the Office of Civil Rights guidance on § 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
- Utilizing negligence and negligence per se actions as an alternative to title III claims
- Highly detailed chapter on remedies and procedural issues
- Improved checklists and much improved litigation forms
- Understanding the Americans With Disabilities Act, Third Edition (American Bar Association, March, 2010).
This book, written from the perspective of a lawyer with a disability gives an easy to understand road map of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It also discusses preventive lawyering with regards to the ADA. Author William Goren has a congenital bilateral hearing loss of 65-90 db+ mitigated by hearing aids and lip reading.
