MIAMI – A Miami business is alleged to not have a compliant parking space for disabled patrons.
Renzo Barberi filed a complaint on April 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against JM Tire Corp. alleging that the real property operator violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he visited defendant's facility but was denied full and equal access and full and equal enjoyment of the facilities, services, goods and amenities offered therein. He alleges he has been damaged and will continue to be damaged unless the defendant undertakes and completes corrective procedures. The plaintiff holds JM Tire Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide a compliant disabled parking space, compliant directional and informational signage and a compliant accessible route to the main entrance.
The plaintiff seeks an order requiring defendant to alter the subject facility to make it accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, award for damages, reasonable attorney's fees, costs and such other and further relief as the court deems necessary, just and proper. He is represented by Ronald E. Stern of The Advocacy Law Firm in Hallandale Beach.
