A second federal judge has rejected claims from families who sued Disney over changes to disability access at its theme parks, but a lawyer representing the kids and their parents isn’t backing down.

In a ruling this month, U.S. District Judge Manuel Real in California tossed out claims brought by families of children with disabilities who alleged that Disney’s 2013 policy changes violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The families are among dozens who have sued Disney in recent years after the company altered its approach to disability accommodations.
