Bond v. United States Decision Ruled Irrelevant to Ratifying Disability Treaty (CRPD)

AUCD Urges Congress to put the Disability Treaty up for Vote and Future Ratification

The Supreme Court's unanimous decision, the Chief Justice's opinion, and Bond all affirm that Bond is not an impediment to the ratification of the Disability Treaty. AUCD urges Senate to ratify the CRPD quickly and we look forward to working with them to accomplish this goal.
