Abstract This lawsuit, brought pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), Rehabilitation Act (“RA”), and the Eighth Amendment, alleges that New York State and its prison officials violated the statutory and constitutional rights of elderly and medically-vulnerable incarcerated people by transferring them to the remote Adirondack Correctional Facility (“Adirondack”)—essentially creating a prison nursing home—without readying that prison and its procedures to house them safely.
