SACRAMENTO – A wheelchair user and customer of a Clovis tire shop alleges that the property has barriers that restricted his access.
Jose Acosta filed a complaint on March 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Andonian Enterprises Inc., doing business as Discount Tire Centers, et al. over alleged violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is limited in his ability to walk and uses a wheelchair. He alleges on Jan. 5, he visited defendants' facility for the purpose of having his truck serviced but encountered barriers there that interfered or denied his ability to use the accommodations at the facility. He alleges these barriers included a restroom that is too small for his wheelchair and a step into the entrance of the defendant's facility.
The plaintiff holds Andonian Enterprises Inc., doing business as Discount Tire Centers, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to make the facility accessible and failed to remove the barriers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive and preventive relief, statutory minimum damages, attorneys' fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit, and for such other and further relief as the court deems proper. He is represented by Zachary M. Best of Mission Law Firm in San Jose.
