A commercial client of ours in CT was a private sports club.  They had indoor
and outdoor tennis courts, swimming pools and lots of other good stuff.  One
day they were notified by an attorney representing a handicapped person in the
town who never even inquired about membership that they intended to file an
ADA suit against the club because there was no wheelchair access to the second
floor hand-ball court.

I might understand if the complainant was a member or had at least considered
membership that he might want to have access to the entire facility.  However,
the handball courts had no spectator seating.  I believe that handicapped
people should enjoy all of the opportunities that more fortunate folks do but
handball?  I figured the complainant just wanted to hold them up.  Sure
enough, before it came to court the attorney offered to settle for some
outrageous amount and drop the action entirely.  The club owner smelled a rat
so he said, "No let's go to court."  He lost.  :(

I once considered spilling hot coffee on my lap............................
but then I remembered that I have not had a cup of coffee for over 30 years
and decided I might just muck it up............

One of the reasons that McD lost that suit was they decided to *continue*
making the coffee very hot for marketing reasons (i.e., people like it that
hot) even after being notified that the woman had scalded herself.  The courts
like to see some sign of corporate contrition when somebody gets hurt,
regardless if it's entirely the victim's fault.

This guy gets around. It wouldn't be the same guy and attorney that has been
making the news about the same type of legal action lately here in Florida
now would it? Your story sounds like it might be. If it is him, he has been
at it for what....10 err 12 err 15 years now. :o]
