LOS ANGELES – A paraplegic alleges that a South Gate business did not have a parking space that was in compliance with regulations for disabled patrons.
Young Hee Park filed a complaint on May 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against 3705 Firestone Blvd LLC and Does 1-10 citing the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is a paraplegic and uses a walker or cane for mobility. She alleges that she went to Fast Auto Loans, which is located at the defendant's property, in January but alleges the parking lot did not have a compliant handicap parking space.
The plaintiff holds 3705 Firestone Blvd LLC and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly denied her the full and equal access to their facility through the inaccessible parking lot.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendant for damages, injunctive relief, attorney's fees, litigation expenses and costs of suit. She is represented by Jong Yun Kim of Law Offices of Jong Yun Kim in Los Angeles.
