We reported back in November how the City of Miami Springs had lost a Federal Appeals case to local activist, journalist, and Miami Springs resident, Theo Karantsalis.
Theo Karantsalis suffers from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) among other ailments. The disease has disabled the former runner where he can no longer do the activities he used to enjoy. As a result, Karantsalis is claiming the City of Miami Springs is violating his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA. We reported on Karantsalis’ original filing back in the pre-COVID days of October of 2019. (Follow the link below.)
Recently, Theo Karantsalis and his attorney, Matthew Dietz, were interviewed by University Professor and Chairman of the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse, Dr. Peter Blanck for Disability Rights Today. They go into a lot of the details of the case as well as many of the legal arguments in support of people with disabilities. You can listen to the Podcast Interview below:
