ORLANDO – A disabled person alleges a property owner and restaurant in Rockledge are not in compliance with the federal regulations regarding individuals with disabilities.
Patricia Kennedy filed a complaint on March 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against Ichikoshi USA Inc. and Carries Enterprises Inc., doing business as Jimmie's Restaurant, citing the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2016, she visited the defendants' property and was subjected to discrimination. The plaintiff holds Ichikoshi USA Inc. and Carries Enterprises Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly denied plaintiff full access and total enjoyment of the facility because of architectural barriers in the parking lot, path of travel and public restroom.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants, permanent injunction against discriminatory practices, attorney's fees and costs. She is represented by Rafael Viefo III of Federal Disability Advocates in Miami.
