Pursuant to the U.S. Supreme Court's 2006 decision in U.S. v. Georgia, as followed by the 2006 Connecticut Appellate Court case of Mercer v. Strange, as long as a private cause of action against the state for money damages stems from conduct that violates the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §12101 validly abrogates state sovereignty without necessitating a showing of discriminatory animus or ill will.
