Access-related lawsuits continue to clog the federal courts here in Sacramento in 2013. Scott Johnson, a prolific ADA litigant, has filed over 50 ADA lawsuits in Sacramento this year alone.
Scott Johnson isnâ€™t the only frequent ADA litigant in the Sacramento area. George Louie and Jason Singleton are also common names that pop up in the court files.
The best way for a Sacramento business to avoid being sued under the ADA is to make sure that your business location is 100% up to code. This typically requires an expert site evaluation by a CASp, which typically costs between $400-800. It is better to spend money on prevention instead of on attorney's fees and settlement payments.
These lawsuits have closed countless Sacramento businesses. As an attorney, I hate to see a small business close under the pressure of litigation.
