“ADA Abuse” in the Richmond District, 2011

Question: When four-star-Yelp-rated Han Il Kwan restaurant way out there in the West Bay, in the Middle Richmond District, precisely, had to close down recently for extensive refurbishment, as reported in the excellent Richmond District Blog, was that an example of “ADA abuse” or was it an example of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Unruh Civil Rights Act, and the California Disabled Persons Act functioning as designed?

Answer: This one’s easy. Increasing costs for businesses and/or shutting them down isĀ an example of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Unruh Civil Rights Act, and theĀ California Disabled Persons Act functioning as designed.

What some call “abuse” of the law, I call use of the laws.
