When the ADA Attacks

New, 1 comment

The past several months have seen a rash of ADA accessibility lawsuits hit the city, with restaurants being the primary targets: "Some [displeased business owners] invoke Clint Eastwood who, when his Carmel restaurant, Misson Ranch, was hit by an ADA lawsuit in 2000, famously claimed these suits amounted to 'legalized racketeering' ... Along with XOX Truffles, at least six other businesses on the same block of Columbus Avenue have been served, including Sushi on North Beach, Italian restaurant Da Flora and the sandwich shop Petite Deli. Last week Ricos, a burrito joint on the same the street, received their summons." [Chron]
