ANGRIES - Lets take a moment to remember Mr. 30-Law-Suits, the wheelchair wielding Craig Thomas Yates from the Chile Lindo empanada eviction story. Well he's at it again in the Richmond district. According to this Chron story, Yates sued three merchants and the landlord of a building at Clement and Arguello streets, arguing that access impediments in the building's retail stores and restaurants violated his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Other small businesses in the area have received similar complaints in recent months." [Chron]
