Obama-Biden Transition Update



By Carin Yavorcik, from ASA News

President-elect Barack Obama has tapped two experts to conduct an audit of current disability policy, both of whom worked on the campaign. Examining the National Council on Disability/Access Board Review will be:

Kareem Dale, managing partner of The Dale Law Group and adjunct professor at Northwestern University School of Law. Prior to founding The Dale Law Group, Dale spent eight years in the litigation department of a major law firm, where his practice focused on products liability, personal injury, mass tort litigation, contract disputes and other general commercial litigation.

Marilyn Golden, policy analyst at the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF), who has been closely involved with the Americans With Disabilities Act throughout all the stages of its proposal and passage. As an ADA trainer, she has directed and led numerous in-depth programs on the ADA, which have given thousands of people comprehensive knowledge on how to make this law a reality. She is the principal author of the DREDF publication The ADA, an Implementation Guide (the “Bluebook”).
