LOS ANGELES – A Whittier business is alleged to have failed to maintain access in its parking lot for disabled patrons.
Robert Sanchez filed a complaint on April 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against iPhone Repair, also known as MCS, and Mark Troughton alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff has physical disabilities and has a disabled person parking placard issued by the state. He alleges that in March 2018, he went to patronize defendants' establishment but was hindered by a lack of access to the parking area designated for individuals with disabilities like plaintiff.
The plaintiff holds iPhone Repair and Troughton responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide full and properly maintained access to the handicap parking area and caused plaintiff difficulty, discomfort and embarrassment.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants for injunctive relief, actual damages and statutory minimum of $4,000, attorneys' fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit, and further relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Faud Haghighi of Faud Haghighi Law Firm in Santa Ana.
