This Comment explores the origin and effect of the ADA on AIDS related discrimination law in North Carolina. First, the Comment provides an overview of the disease, the discrimination behind it, and the past efforts to confront the problem. In particular, the Comment details how the federal government and most states moved to respond to AIDS discrimination and how simultaneously North Carolina's government stripped most victims of AIDS discrimination of their day in court. The Comment then describes the ADA, its application to AIDS discrimination, and how the ADA contrasts with North Carolina's response to AIDS discrimination.
