LOS ANGELES – A Gardena liquor and grocery market is alleged to not have compliant parking spaces for customers with disabilities.
Jose Amador Jacobo filed a complaint on Aug. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Gurpal Kaur, doing business as Holiday Liquor, and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is an amputee and uses a wheelchair when traveling. He alleges on June 3 and July 24, he suffered difficulty and frustration because of the defendant property's lack of parking space and access aisles designated for persons with disabilities.
The plaintiff holds Kaur, doing business as Holiday Liquor, and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to comply with the federal and state standards for the parking space designed for persons with disabilities.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for preliminary and permanent injunction; statutory, general and treble damages; attorney’s fees; litigation expenses and costs of suit; and further relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Kevin Hong of Advanced Disability Advocates in Los Angeles.
