Settlement Reached in Burger King Accessibility Class Action
Friend of the blog Amy Robertson passes along word that she and her cocounsel have reached a settlement in their class action challenging the inaccessibility of 86 California Burger King stores to people who use scooters or wheelchairs. The settlement provides significant injunctive relief to ensure that the stores will be and remain accessible, as well as $19 million in monetary relief. The notice to class members is here, and the settlement itself is here. Looks like a really strong settlement.
