Jarek Molski of Woodlnd Hills is disabled. He goes to a lot of restaurants, finds violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and sues.
But the Overlawyered site has really owned the Molski story, and I turn to them for news that the Ninth Circuit last week upheld a decision to declare Molski a vexatious litigant who must obtain court permission to file ADA suits against ethnic restaurants.
Money quote from the decision (PDF file):
[I]t is very unlikely that Molski suffered the same injuries, often multiple times in one day, performing the same activities—transferring himself from his wheelchair to the toilet or negotiating accessibility obstacles. Common sense dictates that Molski would have figured out some way to avoid repetitive injury-causing activity; even a young child who touches a hot stove quickly learns to avoid pain by not repeating the conduct.
Yes, he does . . . unless he can sue Mom for statutory damages, that is.
This guy must be a real jerk if even the Ninth Circuit is shutting him down.
