WASHINGTON (AP) -- April 18, 2011
The Supreme Court won't stop a disabled man's lawsuit against Chipotle Mexican Grill for having counters too high for a person in a wheelchair.
The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from the
Maurizio Antoninetti sued when he found that he could not see
the Chipotle food preparers because of the height of the counters.
A federal judge ruled against him, saying Antoninetti had sued
dozens of other places for access violations and dropped the suit
after received cash settlements.
The judge said Antoninetti was insincere about wanting to return
and eat at Chipotle.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the judge's
ruling, saying Antoninetti's litigation history cannot be used
The case is Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. v. Maurizio
