    Being a Disabled Vet I keep a close eye out for NEWs about ADA violation by companies....some are ligit some are not....to me this is the kind of fiverlous lawsuits that tie up the court systems and make people believe that complieing with the ADA is cost prohibative.....still I never tried to get a lap dance in a wheel chair so I may change my mind if I ever end up in one.

    Quadriplegic Sues Strip Club Because Lap Dance Room Does Not Have Wheelchair Access

    The Associated Press

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. July 15 — A quadriplegic has sued a strip club, charging that it violates the Americans with Disabilities Act because the lap dance room does not have wheelchair access.

    Edward Law, of Orlando, sued the Wildside Adult Sports Cabaret last month after visiting the West Palm Beach club on May 9 and June 14.

    The lap dance room is only accessible by a short flight of stairs, according to the suit. It also alleges that the counter around the stage where strippers dance is too high, making it difficult for Law to see the stage and set down his drinks.

    "This is an industry that is high profit and knows about ADA and is ignoring it," his attorney, Anthony Brady Jr., told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I have no sympathy for them violating ADA."

    Law also sued another West Palm Beach strip club, The Landing Strip. He charges both clubs with violating ADA standards for bathrooms and parking spaces.

    The suit seeks an unspecified amount of money in attorney's fees and asks that the clubs comply with the federal disability standards.

    Bret Rudowsky, Wildside's general manager, said he was unaware of the problems and Law could have received a lap dance elsewhere in the club.

    Law who has also recently filed ADA lawsuits against an Orlando restaurant and a Daytona Beach Harley-Davidson motorcycle shop declined to comment.
