LOS ANGELES – An Inglewood restaurant is alleged to not have compliant parking for patrons with disabilities.
Carmen John Perri filed a complaint on April 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division against Casa Rio's Restaurant, et al. over alleged violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 17, 2017, he went to defendants' business premises to purchase a snack and encountered difficulty accessing the parking spaces in the parking lot. He alleges that the defendants did not have a designated parking space that complied with the ADA guidelines.
As a result, Perri claims he was denied full and equal access and caused him difficulty, humiliation and frustration.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for actual damages and statutory damages of no less than $4,000 per violation, attorneys' fees, litigation expenses, and costs of suit. He is represented by Joseph R. Manning Jr., Michael J. Manning and Craig G. Côté of Manning Law, APC in Newport Beach.
