TAMPA – A Pasco County man who uses a wheelchair alleges a fast food restaurant in Lutz has discriminatory barriers.
Khan filed a complaint on March 17 in the Tampa Division of the Middle
District of Florida against JLD Realty Inc. alleging violation of the
Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the
plaintiff alleges that he visited the defendant's Arby's restaurant and
had difficulties accessing the goods and services there because of
architectural barriers. The plaintiff holds JLD Realty Inc. responsible
because the defendant's property allegedly has an inaccessible curb
ramp, drink counters and other barriers.
The plaintiff requests a trial
by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, injunctive and
declaratory relief, attorney's fees, costs, expenses of suit, and
further relief as deemed just. He is represented by Louis I. Mussman and
Brian T. Ku of Ku & Mussman PA in Pembroke Pines.
