Santa Fe's city council has responded to the irate citizen's claims that free Wi-Fi would discriminate against sufferers off 'Wi-Fi allergy' under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), by simply rejecting the claims of Arthur Firstenberg, the leader of the group.
Absolutely no evidence whatsoever
Firstenberg in turn calls the city council's decision a 'disaster' and is already talking about legal action.
City Attorney Frank Katz, has researched the matter and has sensibly concluded that any legal challenge from Firstenberg would be without merit.
As Ars Technica has detailed, there is "absolutely no evidence whatsoever" to support the claims of Wi-Fi allergies and, "it has been noted that patients who present themselves to doctors with such symptoms often also suffer from psychiatric complaints."
