People willingly stand in line in order to acquire an order or — ideally — an actual seat at the counter. Good luck with that “counter” wish.
I am completely “abled.” And frequently I can’t get a spot at the counter.
So here comes the “victim” — some poor person in a wheelchair who can’t get a place “at the counter.”
And here comes the suit:
A lawsuit against the Squeeze Inn, the wildly popular Sacramento burger joint, is the latest filed by a disabled woman who in recent months has sued three other area small businesses for allegedly failing to comply with the federal law requiring access for people with disabilities.
The lawsuit against the Squeeze Inn is the fourth since January that Kimberly Block and her lawyers have filed in U.S. District Court in Sacramento under the Americans with Disabilities Act. One of her lawsuits targets another iconic Sacramento eatery, Lil Joe’s on Del Paso Boulevard in North Sacramento.
Because it’s easy money and small businesses call ill afford to fight back, most kick in a few thousand dollars just to make the threat disappear. You’ll note, in the article, the settlements are always secret — part of the action, of course. Not bad for, say, a few hours’ work on the part of a lowlife attorney and a lowlife client, whose sole job is to work in partnership and target small business owners who haven’t completely complied, by the precise letter, of the ADA law. Hey, it’s easy money, ripe fruit low-hanging.
In this case, the owner of the Squeeze Inn has to close the business entirely and find another spot to locate. Thereby totally eliminating a large percentile of its charm.
I find it amazing that anyone wants to start a business, large or small, in Fornicalia.
