NJ Transit to Face Disability Discrimination Lawsuit

See this short article by that title. It reads:

Three disabled residents are suing N.J. Transit.Tyrone Lockett, Paulette Eberle and Shonda Lewis said they've been harassed getting on and off trains and buses. They also said they sometimes are passed by.The three said they complained to N.J. Transit, but were ignored in most cases.

N.J. Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett Hackett said the agency can't comment because it hasn't seen the lawsuits.The three plaintiffs are affiliated with New Jersey Citizen Action.Over the summer, the group conducted a sting to record how disabled riders were treated in Jersey City. The group said it recorded at least 10 incidents in a day where the disabled were discriminated against.
