Lawsuit Says Dayton Mall Discriminating Against Disabled< < Back to
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – A federal lawsuit says an Ohio mall is discriminating against people with disabilities by not allowing buses to stop at the mall’s entrances.
The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Dayton on Tuesday says that not allowing buses to stop at Dayton Mall entrances forces people with disabilities to cross a large parking lot to reach the mall.
A message seeking comment Wednesday from mall owner WP Glimcher Inc. in Columbus wasn’t immediately returned.
The lawsuit filed on behalf of four Dayton-area residents and two organizations representing people with disabilities says the shopping facility is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by not providing easier access. It asks the court to require the mall to allow buses to stop at its entrances. The lawsuit isn’t seeking any monetary damages.
