Yeah...and then there is the problem of suing your landlord. That just doesn't seem like the relationship I'd like to have with the person that controls my living situation and also has to perform services for you when something breaks. So do you really want to be going through the courts every time your landlord delays fixing something in your apartment? There are a lot of things to consider when taking someone to court.
Like when it comes to a work discrimination suit...its usually for a monetary settlement/pay out...not for the job back. Doesn't seem very smart to keep working for a company because the law forced them to keep you on.
jlbjab...all the things that are being brought up are how the law works. Its not about what you or I think (you'd actually probably not be allowed to sit on a jury for this case as you are clearly emotionally connected to this subject). Federal law does not trump local law...federal law exists for the federal courts which deal with interstate relations (plaintiff and defendant are from different states so there is a question of what law to use) and even in those cases the law where the incident occurred will most likely be used.
Think of the drug laws...marijuana is now legal in some counties...and yet its highly illegal by federal law.
wow...i don't think you posted one accurate thing. thats quite the feat to be wrong about everything.
first of all, a service animal lawsuit would be a civil suit and there are no juries in civil suits so i won't have to worry about being emotionally connected to anything.
second of all, my landlord doesn't control my living situation. they are obligated to fix and maintain the unit in which i live. do i want to have a stressed relationship with my landlord? if it meant not being pushed/bullied around then yes, i'd call that a worthy fight. regarding your workplace analogy, i'd wager that most people WOULD want to keep their job. afterall, it's their livlihood.
and most importantly, if you're gonna google information you may want to verify that it's credible. federal law always supecedes local or state laws. state and local laws can only be more strict than federal laws, never more lenient.
your analogy regarding marijuana is also quite misguided. marijuana is only legal in some areas with a prescription. no prescription? you get arrested. comparable to oxycodone. oxy with a Rx=legal, without a Rx=illegal.
