During this session we will cover the federal law and provide a sampling of the state law regarding service animals and assistance/emotional support animals in public settings, housing, and transportation. We will discuss different definitions of service animals under the ADA, FHA, and the ACAA and clarify the different regulatory approaches under the DOJ, DOT and HUD regulations. We will also discuss state law approaches that protect a wider array of animals and users and provide penalties unavailable under federal law. The session will involve review of legislation, regulations, guidance, case law and recent news items regarding service animals and claimed service animals.
