SACRAMENTO – An Arizona woman alleges a Sacramento hotel has architectural barriers that restrict access to wheelchair users.
Theresa Brooke filed a complaint on June 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Ekdanta Investments LLC alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the California Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 13, she visited the defendant's Sure Stay Plus Hotel in Sacramento to book a room. She alleges that she could not navigate the passenger loading zone in her wheelchair because of the 3-inch curb and left because she could not enter the property.
The plaintiff holds Ekdanta Investments LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to remove architectural barriers to make its lodging services fully accessible to persons with disabilities.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages, costs of suit, attorneys’ fees, and other relief the court deems just. She is represented by Peter Kristofer Strojnik of The Strojnik Firm LLC in Phoenix, Arizona.
