Fitting 20th Birthday Present for the ADA

Quoting The CATO Institute:
“The Chipotle Mexican Grill heralds its ‘Chipotle Experience,’ in which customers can watch their food being made behind a glass partition. Now a Ninth Circuit panel (including famously liberal judges Stephen Reinhardt and Dorothy Nelson) has ruled that the ‘experience’ violates the Americans with Disabilities Act, to quote the AP, ‘because the restaurants’ 45-inch counters are too high. The company now faces hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.’ The ruling arrives just in time for the ADA’s 20th anniversary, which, as the Washington Post notes, is serving as the occasion for a virtual binge of new regulation-making by the Obama Administration and Congress…

[The plaintiff in this case] has sued over twenty business entities for alleged accessibility violations, and, in all (but one) of those cases, he never returned to the establishment he sued after settling the case and obtaining a cash payment.”
