A Federal Appeals Court ruled on Tuesday that two blind students have the right to use the disparate theory of impact, which requires that the plaintiffs only show that a policy has an impact on them, not for it to be intentional, in A lawsuit against the district of the community of Los Angeles.

If the decision was confirmed, a lawyer of the National Federation of Blind, who joined the case, said it would be much easier to earn cases of discrimination based on disability. Joseph B. ESPO, the lawyer, said: "People will not have to demonstrate that there was an intention to cause harm," and that will make the cases much easier to win.

However, the failure by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit was 2 to 1. And the dissident judge said that the disparate impact theory did not deserve consideration.
