By Luke Rosiak

In April, the latest month for which data were available, 183 cases alleging employment discrimination based on the ADA were filed in federal court, a 21 percent increase over a month prior and a 12 percent increase over April 2011, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. The number of lawsuits has risen steadily over the past five years, for a total rise of 90 percent.
