Senator calls for changes to ADA

Senator Diane Feinstein is encouraging California legislators to address the problem of “drive-by” lawsuits filed under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  She warns that lawyers are using the law, which allows plaintiffs to sue for $4,000 per day, to extort payments from business owners.  Feinstein is pushing for a 90-day grace period for owners to bring their business into compliance with the ADA before any lawsuit can be filed, reports CBS San Francisco.  ILR has featured multiple abusive California ADA lawsuits on the Faces of Lawsuit Abuse website.
