You can also write a letter directly to the business and ask them to come into compliance. The ADA covers all businesses and courts expect people with disabities to enforce the law ourselves. There's a couple attorneys in town who do these cases. Much faster than waiting for the Department of Justice to read their mail.

I believe when a business changes ownership,it's required to be brought up to current code before it can open. Likewise,if the Restaurant in question was sold,the buyer would have to install the ramp before being allowed to open. As the story points out,the owner is "grandfathered" until the place is either sold or extensively remodeled. I don't see that being discriminatory. BTW-In some communities there are Church groups and Veteran groups that will help with building ramps and other mods to make places more "handicapped-friendly".

I know a business owner in midtown that could not open until she installed a wheelchair ramp on her shop. It was a business before she bought it that did not have a ramp. The city would not let her open until the ramp was built and inspected. So I am thinking there is a discrimination here.

Why give business to a place that doesn't want you there? There are a lot of great places to eat around here that allow for wheelchair access. Take your business to someone that will appreciate it.
