SAN DIEGO — A disabled California man who requires a wheelchair is suing a San Diego business owner, alleging disability discrimination.
Chris Langer, who has filed numerous disability lawsuits, filed a complaint Feb. 5 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Mission Corner, LLC and Does 1-10, alleging violations of the American’s With Disabilities Act and Unruh Civil Rights Act ￼.
According to the complaint, in December 2017, Langer went to Mission Corner's property, 3445 Midway Drive, San Diego, to eat at a Subway restaurant. Langer says he encountered barriers to fully access the public facility. He alleges the defendant does not have a policy or procedure to ensure that parking spaces reserved for persons with disabilities remain usable.
As a result, Langer says he was denied full and equal access to the facility, causing him difficulty and frustration.
The plaintiff alleges Mission Corner failed to make the facility readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.
Langer seeks trial by jury, actual damages and a statutory minimum of $4,000, attorney fees, litigation expenses and costs of suit. He is represented by attorney Isabel Masanque of Center for Disability Access in San Diego.
