Auburn Businesses Struggle with ADA Lawsuit Costs

See this article by that title.  It begins:

Steve Rowett will be paying Carmichael-based attorney Scott Johnson $200 a month for the next five years. 
Rowett, who owns Sierra Smog on the corner of Highway 49 and Elm Avenue, in Auburn, is one of several local business-owners who were sued by Johnson for their buildings being out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. 
If he would have had a plan in place with a Certified Access Specialist before being sued by Johnson, he would have been protected from legal action, according to Michelle Davis, Auburn architect and Certified Access Specialist.
