Just days after I posted about the difficulties of getting around on crutches, even in supposedly “Handicapped Accessible” places, I read that a lawyer in the St. Louis area is having a beef with the bar association for the same reason. The attorney is in a motorized scooter, and she couldn’t get into the bar association office because the door was big and heavy and didn’t have an automatic opener.
But she didn’t sue; she just refused to pay her dues, since she couldn’t get in.
(The association is now working with the building’s owners to fix the problem.)
