Abuse of ADA a plague on California small businesses

ADA News
ADA News

Robert McCarthy is a serial litigant. And the Americans With Disabilities Act is the weapon he uses to shake down his victims.

Since 2001, McCarthy has filed more than 250 lawsuits against small businesses throughout the Golden State, alleging various violations under the federal law (which, in turn, constitute violations of California’s Civil Code).

Every infraction can cost $4,000. And with McCarthy alleging multiple infractions in most of his ADA suits, his victims have considerable motivation to pay him a reduced settlement to go away.

Here’s what particularly galls about McCarthy, who shamelessly exploits the fact that he is wheelchair-bound: He’s not a California resident. He resides in an Arizona assisted-living facility.

It’s because he finds California such a target-rich environment for ADA litigation that he makes a yearly trip to our fair state to seek out fresh prey. Read more…

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. –

A Sioux Falls woman has filed a complaint with the Department of Justice, claiming the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is not ADA compliant.

This comes after an incident at the Bob Seger concert on Mar. 17 where an elevator broke down for a short period of time.

Seger may have brought down the house, but once the music stopped, some people were having trouble getting out of the house.

“I found a group of people just waiting and waiting,” said Joy Tuscherer.

Tuscherer walks with a cane and says she also has a brain disease. She was among the group that lined up at one of the elevators after the show.

“I went over to a woman who was using a motorized wheelchair and I said ‘what is going on with the elevator’,” said Tuscherer. Read more
