Betancourt v. Trinitas -- Not Dead Yet Amicus Brief

I just posted (here in PDF) the final, and largest brief submitted on behalf of plaintiff/respondent in Betancourt v. Trinitas:
BRIEF OF AMICI CURIAE, NOT DEAD YET, ADAPT, CENTER FOR SELF-DETERMINATION, NATIONAL COUNCIL ON INDEPENDENT LIVING, NATIONAL SPINAL CORD INJURY ASSOCIATION, AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, and DISABILITY RIGHTS NEW JERSEY
Not Dead Yet also posts a copy of the brief at their own site.

Thanks for the shout-out. I'll put up a link to your own post and brief later today.

BTW, in case you're wondering why I went with Word rather than PDF, there really is a reason for it. As a disability rights group, we try to post things in accessible formats. Scanned documents in PDF are unreadable to people who use any kind of screen reader.

Sometimes, of course, there's not much of a choice. Sometimes we'll link to podcasts or radio shows that don't have a transcript, which makes the information inaccessible to dear and hard of hearing readers of the blog.
