State Architect to Introduce Emergency Regulations to Align California Building Code and the ADA

Because of these conflicts, construction of new facilities or alteration of existing facilities under current State Building Code provisions may be out of compliance with the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards.  Every newly constructed or altered toilet facility within California will violate some aspect of the 2010 ADA Standards until the 2013 California Building Code goes into effect on January 1, 2014.   Violations of the 2010 ADA Standards, even technical ones, are violations of California Civil Code § 54 (c) likely resulting in further lawsuits over technical violations for even fractions of an inch.
