SACRAMENTO — A disabled woman who must use a wheelchair is suing Fresno facility operators, alleging disability discrimination and failure to uphold Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.
Rachel Bryant filed a complaint Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Casa Corona Foods Inc., doing business as Casa Corona, and Cedar Pointe Investors LP, alleging they failed to provide full and safe equal access to its facilities.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 4, Bryant suffered damages from having encountered barriers, both physical and intangible, that interfered with and denied her ability to use and enjoy the goods, services, privileges and accommodations offered at Casa Corona in Fresno.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to modify the facility to remove impediments to wheelchair access and failed to adhere to relevant building standards.
Bryant seeks trial by jury, statutory damages, injunctive and preventive relief, attorney fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit, interest and all further relief the court deems proper. She is represented by attorney Zachary M. Best of Mission Law Firm APC in San Jose.
