Michael Harris & Karla Hudson v. Wayne County Airport Authority
Disabled and elderly passengers do not have to wait outside for transportation at busy Detroit Metropolitan Airport Wayne County airport after Nyman Turkish lawyer Jason Turkish successfully negotiated an out-of-court agreement with the Wayne County Airport Authority that protects Detroit’s disabled community.
Following the airport’s decision to discontinue public transportation pick up and drop off services for passengers at the McNamara Terminal, Turkish filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Detroit alleging that the decision violated the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, on behalf of two plaintiffs, one wheelchair-bound and the other blind. The suit alleged that several disabled plaintiffs would no longer be able to safely access airport transportation services under the new rules.
