LOS ANGELES – A wheelchair user alleges she encountered barriers at a Los Angeles business that limited her access.
Jennifer Flores filed a complaint on April 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Jagat Singh, doing business as Jack's Market, and Does 1-10 citing the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Unruh Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 8, 2017, and Dec. 12, 2017, she visited the defendants' location and encountered barriers there. She alleges the defendants failed to maintain the parking space designated for persons with disabilities.
The plaintiff holds Singh and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed provide the parking space identification sign and failed to paint the international symbol of accessibility on the surface as required.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants for preliminary and permanent injunction; award of statutory, general and treble damages; restitution; attorney’s fees; litigation expenses; costs of suit; interest and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Kevin Hong of Advanced Disability Advocates in Los Angeles.
