If you want CAP to represent you, you should contact CAP before you file for an appeal.

The Disability Law Index contains federal statutes and regulations organized by subject and includes court case opinions and legal articles that help interpret federal disability-related laws. This index is regularly updated; however, it is not an exhaustive resource. While the information provided through the index can inform readers, it is not intended to replace the need for legal counsel. Some opinions expressed in the court cases are only binding in particular areas of the country. The Disability Law Index is a project of the Southwest Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center (DBTAC), which is in turn housed within the Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU).
