ST. LOUIS — An individual with a disability is suing Ballpark Village Holdings Block 350 LLC for alleged disability discrimination.
Dennis Tooley filed a complaint on July 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division, alleging that the property operator violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that when he visited the defendant's property to utilize the facilities, he experienced serious difficulty accessing the facilities' goods and utilizing the services.
He claims that he suffered damages for being obligated to retain a counsel for the filing of this complaint. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to designate accessible parking space and provide accessible seating areas for people with disabilities.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order directing defendant to alter the facility to make it accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities and to evaluate and neutralize its policies and procedures toward people with disabilities, an award for attorneys’ fees, costs and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Jeff S. Keech of Law Offices of Jeff Keech in Chesterfield and Brian T. Ku of Ku & Mussman PA in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
