University of Michigan sued over stadium access

April 18, 2007
Disabled veterans group says football facility is inaccessible to people with disabilities.

A disabled veterans group filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the University of Michigan, contending that Michigan Stadium is inaccessible to people with disabilities and will continue to exclude wheelchair users unless the university's $226 million stadium renovation plans are changed. The Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America want a judge to prohibit construction at the Ann Arbor stadium until the school revamps the plan to include more than 700 additional wheelchair seats.
