Federal judge: ADA makes porches in new stores illegal



Hollister brands its stores with a "porch" entrance with two steps; it contended that it complied with the ADA because there was a second entrance at ground level accessible to everyone. Not good enough, said disability advocates and the Department of Justice, and a federal district court judge agreed, holding that it was not enough to comply with regulations without regard to the unwritten "overarching aim" of the statute.
