Best Western Encina Lodge v. D’Lil

Date: August 11, 2011

U.S. Supreme Court

This case involves a question of standing. The plaintiff alleged that the Encina Lodge violated the ADA’s public accommodation provisions.  When D'Lil filed a motion for attorneys' fees, the district court, sua sponte, raised the question whether D'Lil – a serial ADA plaintiff - had standing to sue in the first place.  The Ninth Circuit reversed the district court finding that D’Lil did not have standing.

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed on March 6, 2009 in support of Best Western’s request that the Supreme Court review the Ninth Circuit’s decision.  Court denied review on June 22, 2009.
