You've missed the point completely. The "disabled" people are not behind this at all. It is a lawyer who is looking for a paycheck. He wants to be paid for the time it takes him to deal with this unnecessary lawsuit.
Half the people posting are saying the lawsuit is correct because they have sympathy for disabled people. But it's been reported several times already in the comments that facilities (tactile number pads) ALREADY EXIST in each store to service visually impaired customers properly! So (if true) there is nothing to sue over!
If the facilities do not exist, a law suit is still a scumbag approach as a first attempt to get the problem rectified. Is there no way for someone to report a non-compliant company to the ADA and have a fine or sternly worded - even threatening letter sent by the federal government to the offending company? *That* would be a reasonable first step - and if it were ignored, then perhaps a lawsuit would be the way to go. But it appears that this particular lawyer has hired himself to
champion this cause - and as a slap in the face to the affected class of disabled shoppers - is NOT pursuing damages? The only person he cares about being paid is himself!
This is a frivolous suit filed by a greedy lawyer. Nothing more.
