SAN DIEGO – A Del Mar Heights Road, San Diego restaurant is alleged to have failed to comply with state access standards for patrons who use wheelchairs.

Jaime Reyes filed a complaint on March 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Snoozetown LLC, Del Mar Highlands Town Center Associates II LLC and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff uses a wheelchair. He alleges that on July 26, 2017, he was denied full and equal access to the Snooze: An A.M. Eatery because he was not able to gain access to seating in the dining area. He alleges the property had no designated or alternative seating available for persons who use wheelchairs.

The plaintiff holds Snoozetown LLC, Del Mar Highlands Town Center Associates II LLC and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants' property allegedly is in violation of the disabled access laws.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants; injunctive relief; award actual, special and/or statutory damages; punitive and exemplary damages; attorney's fees; costs; and other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Michael A. Taibi of Taibi & Associates APC in San Diego.
