Abstract Scot Hollonbeck, Tony Iniguez, and Jacob Heilveil are elite athletes with disabilities who have competed in the Paralympic Games. The United States Olympic Committee (“USOC”) denies benefits, programming, funding and other support to Paralympic athletes that it provides to Olympic athletes. Hollonbeck, Iniguez and Heilveil sued the USOC under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act to remedy this discrimination.
