Curbed reported on the class-action lawsuit filed by NYLPI and pro bono member firm Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello PC on behalf of three people with disabilities against the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).

Christopher Schuyler, NYLPI Senior Staff Attorney for Disability Justice, said MTA’s current solutions for fixing the gaps aren’t enough. “The MTA’s definition of what an accessible station means is too limited.
