Much Ado Over Emotional Support Dogs

Down at Concurring Opinions, Jason Mazzone and Miriam Cherry, along with a few commenters, are discussing this New York Times article about the possible abuse of the protections the ADA gives to service animals. Seems to me like there may be some abuse, but the concern seems way out of proportion to how much is really going on. (I have a similar view about this story: Lying about a disability in a lawsuit ought to be punished criminally, but there are scam artists everywhere, and our discussion of the ADA shouldn't focus unduly on them.)
