MIAMI – A Lee County man is suing the owners of a flea market over allegations the property is not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Jeffrey Joel Judy filed a complaint on March 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against Miami Merchants Mart LLC, citing failure to uphold Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he experienced serious difficulty accessing the defendant's facility due to the architectural barriers and was denied equal enjoyment of the goods and services offered at the property.
The plaintiff seeks the following: an order requiring defendant to alter the property to make it accessible to individuals with disabilities; reasonable attorneys' fees and costs; and any further relief as the court may deem necessary, just and proper. He is represented by Louis Mussman and Brian T. Ku of Ku & Mussman PA in Miami Lakes.
