Abstract

South Dakota Codified Law provides protection against discrimination on the basis of disability in the context of employment, housing, and other environs. The plaintiff with a disability in South Dakota may select from either a federal (the ADA or Rehabilitation Act) or state law matrix (or both) in framing a complaint. In many respects, South Dakota's disability discrimination laws were drafted with clear advantages for defendants in comparison to federal laws.
