Federal Court Condemns Frivolous, Serial ADA Litigation Which Subverts the Noble Purpose of the ADA and the Entire Legal Profession
April 8, 2013
On March 28, 2013, a Federal Judge in the Eastern District of New York excoriated plaintiff Mike Costello's attorneys for filing scores of frivolous ADA lawsuits against mom-and-pop businesses over technical or non-existent deviations from the ADA Standards only to line their own pockets. In 2011, the plaintiff, Mike Costello, filed a complaint against a Subway franchisee and his landlord under the ADA and state and city New York Human Rights laws. The same day, the plaintiff and his lawyers filed seven other identical ADA lawsuits against small businesses located within a two-block radius of the Subway store.
