Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
The law firm of Statman, Harris & Eyrich, LLC announces that two class action lawsuits have been filed relating to the Americans With Disabilities Act.
The first action is against Ticketmaster and other defendants alleging violations of California’s Disabled Persons Act (“CDPA”) and has been filed in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles (Case No. BC489093). The action was filed on behalf of disabled persons alleging Ticketmaster and others of discriminatory practices by not allowing wheelchair users to purchase wheelchair-accessible tickets for various entertainment and concert venues directly online. The CDPA follows the requirement of the Americans with Disabilities Act which mandates: “A public accommodation that sells tickets for a single event or series of events shall modify its policies, practices, or procedures to ensure that individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to purchase tickets for accessible seating through the same methods of distribution [as other patrons]” (28 C.F.R. § 36.302(f)(ii)).
The second action is against Wal-Mart Stores based on Wal-Mart’s alleged refusal to provide accessible point of sale (“POS”) terminals for consumers with mobility disabilities who use wheelchairs and scooters at many of Wal-Mart’s retail stores throughout California (United States District Court Northern District of California Case No. 12-cv-3885).
