MIAMI — A man is suing Big Daddy's Pizza & Subs, a Margate restaurant, citing alleged violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Luis Sierra, who is paraplegic, filed a complaint on March 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Big Daddy's alleging that the lack of public accommodation breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on March 20, 2017, he suffered from discrimination and injury because of the architectural barriers that exist on the property owned by the defendant that deter disabled person from fully and equally accessing its facilities and premises. Specifically cited were the unfavorable conditions that existed in the restroom for disabled persons. The plaintiff holds Big Daddy's responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to design and construct such premises to be accessible to and accommodate persons with disabilities, including the proper installation of fixtures in the restroom.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, declaratory relief, attorney's fees, costs, expenses of suit and further relief as may deem just. He is represented by Jessica L. Kerr of The Advocacy Group in Fort Lauderdale.
