Linda Slone, who has polio and uses a wheelchair, is suing 39 Upper West Side stores for not being wheelchair-accessible. “In each suit, all filed in Manhattan federal court, she demands $500 in damages, plus lawyers’ and experts’ fees, which could run up to $15,000. She has settled half of her 39 suits since 2010…Most small shops have no choice but to settle since the cost of going to court would put them out of business.” Barbara Gee Danskin, West Side Wine and Quality Florists were among those sued.
