Heron Lakes Center LLC and Lefty's Tavern at Coral Springs Inc., doing business as Lefty's Tavern and Grille, citing violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 5, he was denied full, safe and equal access to the defendants' facilities, goods, services and amenities.
