Judge Cracks Down on Abusive ADA Litigation

A federal judge has ordered two New York lawyers to stop filing ADA suits after ruling that their “tactics lacked expertise, possibly violated the rules of professional conduct and were ‘disingenuous at best.’ According to the New York Times, the lawyers have filed dozens of lawsuits over disability access and collected thousands of dollars in legal fees, but the judge found that they were essentially “cutting and pasting old defendants in place of new defendants.”  New York isn’t the only jurisdiction where frivolous ADA suits flourish – restaurantscoffee shops, and community centers are among the businesses in California that have been hit with abusive litigation.
