Department Stores Settle Disability Lawsuit

See this article from the Washington Post. The first couple of grafs:

Hecht's and Lord & Taylor agreed to widen pathways between clothing racks, lower some cash registers and remove barriers to fitting rooms to make their stores more accessible to people who use wheelchairs and other mobility devices, settling a four-year-old lawsuit filed on behalf of disabled Washington area shoppers.

Eight shoppers sued the chains' parent company, May Department Stores Co., in 2001 under the Americans with Disabilities Act, accusing the chains of creating "an inescapably dismal and frustrating shopping experience."
