NEW ORLEANS – A St. John the Baptist Parish man alleges a LaPlace shopping plaza has architectural barriers that make it difficult for disabled patrons to visit the property.
Wayne Golmore filed a complaint on March 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Tat-Lyn LLC alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during his visits at defendant's property, he experienced serious difficulty accessing the goods and utilizing the services offered therein. The plaintiff holds Tat-Lyn LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly has inaccessible parking spaces, curb ramps and tenant entrances.
The plaintiff seeks an order directing defendant to alter the facility to make it accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities, award for reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Georgianne Sims of Ku & Mussman PA in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
