Serial Litigant Accused of Violating ADA Requirement

A prolific ADA plaintiff who is facing a sexual harassment suit from a number of former employees is also facing accusations that he improperly gathered evidence for his disability-access lawsuits.  According to the Recorder:

“The women said [attorney Scott] Johnson sent them into businesses with cameras and measuring tapes to document access law violations. He would then cite those findings in warning letters and legal filings, a potential violation of laws that require plaintiffs to personally be denied access.”

These accusations aren’t the only instances of abusive litigation.  VisitFacesOfLawsuitAbuse.org to see even more examples, including a lawsuit over a bathroom mirror that was installed two inches too high, a coffee shop sued after the owner fixed any and all violations, and a plaintiff who sued a restaurant he never visited.
