A class-action lawsuit is currently pending in California challenging barriers at corporate-owned Taco Bell restaurants in that state. You may be a member of the class if you have a disability, use a wheelchair or scooter, and have encountered one of these barriers at a covered Taco Bell restaurant:(1) Narrow “queue lines” -- the barriers causing customers to form one line to the cash register; (2) Doors that are too narrow or hard to open; (3) Inaccessible restrooms; (4) Inaccessible parking; (5) Excessive cross-slope in parking lots or sidewalks; (6); Inaccessible condiments or other items; (7); Inaccessible seating or (8) Other wheelchair or scooter access problems.
If the litigation is successful, Taco Bell may be required to remedy its barriers and class members will be entitled to claim damages. The class is seeking up to $4,000 for each time a class member encountered a barrier at a covered Taco Bell. For example, a class member may be entitled to collect damages for each time he or she had difficulty parking, had difficulty getting to the counter because of a narrow queue line, had difficulty using the restroom because it was too small or obstructed, or encountered other barriers.
