SACRAMENTO – An individual with disabilities alleges a Stockton premises' parking lot is not in compliance with accessibility regulations.
Scott Johnson filed a complaint on Jan. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Pacific Income Group, F.S.C.T. Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is a quadriplegic and uses a wheelchair for mobility. He alleges that from November 2016 to May 2017, he continuously patronized defendants' business establishment, Super King Food Center, but suffered difficulty and frustration during each visit because of the architectural barriers that denied plaintiff full access to the property.
The plaintiff holds Pacific Income Group, F.S.C.T. Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the parking spaces and access aisles are not in compliance with the ADA.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants, an award of actual damages and a statutory minimum of $4,000, injunctive relief and attorney fees, litigation expenses and costs of suit. He is represented by Isabel Masanque, Phyl Grace and Dennis Price of Center for Disability Access in San Diego.
