DOJ Ruling on Disabled Rights in Cruise Ships

Written by Lala C. Ballatan

Continued from page 1

Now, this is really quite an ruling since it essentially goes beyondrepparttar international law, which maintain that ships are generally only subject torepparttar 119151 jurisdiction ofrepparttar 119152 state under whose flag they sail. Infact, cruiselines choose to register under foreign flags precisely to avoid certain regulatory restrictions and costs (i.e., taxation, labor and employment laws).

The DOJ ruling favoringrepparttar 119153 disabled has become a broad application ofrepparttar 119154 ADA to foreign-flagged vessels. This might even be conceivably applied not only to cruise ships, but also to every merchant marine vessel that ever enters US waters. But cruiselines are not interested in complying withrepparttar 119155 nationís stringent ADA since compliance in those circumstances would be extraordinarily expensive and a burden on trade.

I think thereís nothing wrong withrepparttar 119156 ruling, though. Itís just that, public services, transportation and all other busness establishments must not just think aboutrepparttar 119157 expenses that go with compliance on several laws. They must simply learn to respectrepparttar 119158 rights of disabled citizens.
