This just shows how unfair the ADA is to businesses

Things like this are happening too much in today's society. The silliness has to stop!
Specifically this gentleman, who according to the record stated earlier, has settle over 30 suits on similar grounds.

No dispute there but in context, $4000 for emotional distress damages in Southern California is a pittance.

Yep, totally true. I just don't understand why people are mad at the plaintiff. Be mad at the judge for siding with him.

The dude clearly has a smooth attorney, who knows that the ADA is flawed and unfair.

He has a history of doing this.

People like this give disabled people a bad reputation.

Maybe he will be a Segway with his $8000

Sorry, I don't buy it. No judge has to award anyone or their swanky lawyer anything.

The judge does not award anything, but Mr 30 lawsuits has plenty of billable hours to pay for. The attorney gets his piece of the pie eventually.

No disrespect to good attorneys, like Jack.

The boat was not sinking.
The building was not on fire.

I am personally disgusted by this whole thing.

s. Martinez has filed and settled over 30 civil suits alleging ADA violations and including claims for emotional distress. In no one of these suits did Martinez recover any monies for emotional distress, although he recovered statutory damages and obtained injunctive relief in most of these suits.
This is the real issue. Like Jack said, if he was truly suffering an attack he had his meds available but CHOSE not to use them. There isn't much more disgusting than a professional claimant (or in this case, professional plaintiff).

Whatever you feel about the case, Skip, I heartily object to the idea that one person's claim makes an entire class of people look bad. I don't assume that every disabled person files lawsuits whenever they feel like it, and assuming that people feel that way is going overboard.
