Civil Rights – ADA – Domestic Violence Call – Handcuffed Deaf Suspect (access required)

Seremeth v. Board of County Commissioners Frederick County, Md. Police responded reasonably to a domestic call involving a family whose members were deaf by handcuffing the father behind his back, which impeded his ability to write notes or sign, and by calling in an American Sign Language trainee, and the county is entitled to summary judgment on the father’s claim that police violated his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
