Title II of the Americans with Disability Act of 1990 states “Subject to the provisions
of this title, no qualified individual with a disability shall by reason of such disability,
be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs,
or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by such entity.”
