*US v. Highland County
The United States Department of Justice (Department) initiated this matter as a compliance review of Highland County, Ohio, under title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 12131-12134, and the Department’s implementing regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 35. Because Highland County receives financial assistance from the Department of Justice, the review was also conducted under the authority of section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 794, and the Department’s implementing regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 42, Subpart G.

US v. Cinemark USA, Inc.
The United States filed a complaint under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) on March 24, 1999 (the “Complaint”), alleging that Cinemark USA, Inc. engaged in a nationwide pattern and practice of designing, constructing, and/or operating stadium-style movie theaters that deny access to persons with disabilities who use wheelchairs and do not comply with the new construction standards of the ADA, including the line of sight requirements identified in 28 C.F.R. pt. 36, App. A, § 4.33.3. Cinemark has at all times denied any violation of law and nothing in this Consent Order constitutes an admission by Cinemark of any violation under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, its enabling regulations, or of any of the allegations made by the United States in this lawsuit. The United States recognizes that Cinemark has cooperated and demonstrated a commitment to providing persons with disabilities who use wheelchairs equal access to Cinemark’s stadium-style movie theaters. The United States and Cinemark present the following Consent Order and final judgment, which resolves the United States’ Complaint against Cinemark.
