Taxis for All - Court of Appeals hearing Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012

On Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012, the federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals will be hearing oral argument in the case between Disability Rights Advocates and the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission. 
In December,  the lower federal court ruled that New York City must provide the disabled with "reasonable access" to taxi cabs - and what exists already ain't it.  The Taxi & Limousine Commission appealed that decision, and the argument is Tuesday.

Come and lend your support.  The court is at 500 Pearl Street, at 10 AM, with wheelchair-accessible access to the building at 200 Worth Street.
