LOS ANGELES – A wheelchair user alleges an Inglewood business has barriers that restricted his access to the premises.
Carmen John Perri filed a complaint on April 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Quality Inn Suites, Dahya Investments Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 17, he visited the defendants' business to obtain pricing and availability. He alleges there were no ADA-compliant parking spaces for patrons with disabilities at the location.
The plaintiff holds Quality Inn Suites, Dahya Investments Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to take actions to correct the barriers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for damages, preliminary and permanent injunction, award of actual and statutory damages, an additional award of $4,000, attorneys' fees, litigation expenses and costs of suit. He is represented by Joseph R. Manning Jr., Michael J. Manning and Craig G. Cote of Manning Law APC in Newport Beach.
