Disability Advocates Press Biden on Supreme Court Pick

In his nearly three decades on the court, Breyer has been a “strong voice” for disability and civil rights, the letter notes, who has “consistently voted to protect the rights of people with disabilities, including in cases involving our landmark disability civil rights law, the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

“Having a new justice on the court who understands disability and other civil rights laws, and who is committed to a fair day in court for people bringing claims under this law, is critical,” the advocacy groups wrote in their letter to the president.
