The U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in a case that tests protections for the disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Plaintiffs in the case say the state of Tennessee failed to make public buildings accessible to the disabled. Defense lawyers say Congress overstepped its authority by allowing private lawsuits to enforce the law. Hear NPR's Nina Totenberg.
