According to the timely case-by-case case civil enforcement information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), this count was 21.2% higher than the previous month when 151 cases of this kind were filed, and continues a long term rising trend: the volume of current ADA litigation is averaging 90 percent higher than five years ago.
