If this was any other company they wouldn't settle but since Disney dose not want to look like the bad guy they decided to settle with him with his past of law suits I am sure he will come up with another one one the money runs out.

This wasn't a settlement. Disney tried this case last week and the judge issued a decision yesterday. I hadn't been able to find out what happened other than that the judge ruled for Disney on some claims, including the claim that Disney violated the ADA in not evacuating him, and for Martinez on the other.

What was left was a simple negligence claim and (I think) a "signage" claim over where Disney must post signs to accessible bathrooms.

I figured the plaintiff's lawyer would run out and call the newspaper. Thanks David for the story link. The story is inaccurate in at least one respect. Martinez visited in late November when holiday music would have been playing.

This is ridiculous, stupid, and annoying.

This ADA violation crap has to stop!

We go to WDW all the time so I don't have any DL reference point, but at WDW all the bathrooms are accessible. Is that not the case at DL? Do they mean companion bathrooms?

DL is grandfathered on many ADA issues because of when most of the park was built.

I like the way the headline says:
Disabled man gets $8,000 after being stuck on Disney's 'Small World' ride for hours

But, the text of the article says:
An attorney says a disabled man was awarded $8,000 by Disneyland after the "It's A Small World" ride broke down, stranding him for a half hour while the theme song played continuously.

Nothing like an accurate headline!
