ORLANDO – A disabled consumer alleges the owners of a Fort Myers property have discriminated against her by denying access to and full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services and accommodations at the property.
Patricia Kennedy filed a complaint on May 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Regency Square FM LLC alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she visited the defendants' property and encountered barriers that discriminated against her, causing her to suffer direct and indirect injury, frustration and humiliation. The plaintiff holds Regency Square FM LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly has noncompliant restrooms, an insufficient number of compliant parking spaces and other issues.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaration that the defendant's property is in violation of ADA, an order for defendants to make all readily achievable alterations to the facility, attorney’s fees, costs and litigation expenses and for such other relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Thomas B. Bacon of Thomas B. Bacon PA in Mount Dora.
