LOS ANGELES – A wheelchair user alleges a Los Angeles liquor and grocery store has failed to comply with federal and state standards for parking spaces.
Pablo Salinas filed a complaint on July 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Tastee Subs Inc., doing business as Robert's Market, and Does 1 through 10 over alleged violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, on April 2, Salinas went to defendant's Los Angeles business and alleges he personally encountered a number of barriers that interfered with his ability to use and enjoy the goods, services, privileges and accommodations offered at the business.
The plaintiff holds Robert's Market responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to comply with the federal and state standards for the parking space designated for persons with disabilities and failed to post required signage.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks preliminary and permanent injunction, award of damages, attorney's fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit, prejudgment interest and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Jason Yoon, John Y. Kim and Jason J. Kim of So. Cal. Equal Access Group in Los Angeles.
