The Lex Machina team is excited to launch Legal Analytics for litigation involving the Americans with Disabilities Act. These cases include claims under the Americans With Disabilities Act (the “ADA”), as well as related claims under state law (together, the “ADA Module”).This expanded case set includes more than 90,000 cases alleging violations of Title II, Title III, Title V, or state disability rights law.

Lex Machina provides valuable data-driven insights about judges, courts, law firms, attorneys, and parties. The ADA Module incorporates notable features such as filters for high-volume plaintiffs, auditory/visual accommodations, mobility accommodations, service animal accommodations, and website access accommodations. The new module also features high-value data including an extensive collection of practice-area specific damages, remedies, and findings. The inclusion of these unique parameters enables users to find the most relevant information and analytics quickly and easily.

With our new ADA Module, you can quickly and efficiently discover insights such as:

  • The total compensatory damages awarded, excluding attorneys’ fees, is $7,190,395
  • The judge with the highest number of cases is Judge John F. Walter (currently at 1,023 cases) from the Central District of California
  • The number of cases filed in 2020 was 13,043
  • The median time to trial (currently at 329 cases) is 728 days
