SAN DIEGO — A disabled man is suing San Diego property owners, alleging failure to uphold Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.
Jose Estrada filed a complaint Jan. 19 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Santa Fe Shopping Depot LTD, Richard S. Goetz & Company Inc., Trophy Properties Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging they failed to provide full and safe equal access to its facilities.
According to the complaint, in November 2017, Estrada suffered difficulty, discomfort or embarrassment while patronizing the defendants' Cafe Coyote restaurant, 2461 San Diego Ave., San Diego, due to the lack of accessible facilities to accommodate persons with disabilities.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to make alterations to the facility, and failed to make reasonable modifications in policies, practices or procedures to aid disabled patrons.
Estrada seeks trial by jury, damages and a statutory minimum of $4,000, plus injunctive relief, attorney fees, litigation expenses and costs of suit. He is represented by attorney Isabel Masanque of Center for Disability Access in San Diego.
