The ADA and Persons with Mental Disabilities: Can Sanist Attitudes Be Undone?
Breen v. Carlsbad Mun. Sch., 120 P.3d 413 (N.M. 2005)
The fact-specific holding “N.M. Stat. Ann. §§ Sections 52-1-41 and -42 violated equal protection by discriminating against the mentally disabled because the Act allowed substantially more compensation for persons with physical impairments than those with mental impairments and this was not substantially related to furthering the purposes and goals of the Act.”
