2. Briefly describe any two of the five titles(employment, public services, public accommodations, telecommunications, miscellaneous) from the link. Why do you think it is important to have these tenets in place, and what purpose do they serve towards creating a more equitable society?

3. Research a court case in which the injured party is alleged to have been victimized by a breach of the ADA. Summarize the case (in your own words). Was the outcome advantageous to persons with disabilities? Why? Why not?
